Good afternoon everyone!
I was looking through some of my old recipes and photos and came across this muffin recipe and thought I would share it with you. Now a days, when we see a recipe that has 'low fat' in the description it usually involves applesauce- but this one does not!

Low-Fat Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins
Yields 1 dozen


1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 tbsp. 1% low-fat milk OR light vanilla soy milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup strawberry jam (I used this kind)
Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk.
Using a mixing spoon, make a well in the flour mixture. You can simply do this by just "digging" (so to speak) a little hole in the middle of the mixture. Set aside.
In a separate bowl combine yogurt, butter, milk, and eggs stirring well with a whisk.
Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture, stirring until moist. Be careful not to over-mix.
Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners and spray each cavity lightly with cooking spray.
Spoon in 1 tbsp batter into each liner, then adding a tsp. of jam. Once this is done for each muffin, evenly distribute remaining muffin batter.
It should look like this :)
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over batter.
Bake for 15 minutes and cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes as well.
Serve with a few strawberries ( if desired) and enjoy!
