Blueberry Muffins made with Greek Yogurt

So Yummy!I have fallen in love with Donna Hay’s Magazine.  Thanks to a tweet from Tami who writes a beautiful food blog Running With Tweezers I downloaded a free issue last year.  Oh my goodness is it beautiful!  If you are an Ipad user you should go here and load it now , sit down and indulge yourself with the most beautiful food photography and mouth-watering recipes .  Should you want the magazine in hand just head over to Whole Foods to get a copy or order it to be delivered to your doorstep.  Shop around for a good price on a subscription.  After I downloaded the free issue I am now able to get it for about $20.    I just love it!  I could go on and on, but you get the idea.  It is without a doubt a work of art.  This is the first of her recipes that I have tried and you can bet there will be many more.  This is a muffin from heaven and I didn’t even use fresh summer blueberries as I did here.  I picked up Publix frozen blueberries which turned out to be a fabulous choice.  Donna’s basic muffin recipe will be one that I will be making many more times.  I did make one change though.  She used sour cream and I substituted non-fat plain Greek yogurt.  These are super moist and so flavorful.  I have several in my freezer now ready to pop into the microwave for about 30 seconds.  What a great idea.  I think I’ll have one.  What about you?

    I dont like blueberry muffins and judging from the directions I do not think it would be easy to make these.

    I Always Thought That When You Make Blueberry Muffins, You Just Use A Flavoring And Not ACTUAL Whole Chunks Of Blueberries.

    Whisk all your ingredients together until they are smooth.
