Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour + 1 teaspoon divided
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 Tbs unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips + more for topping if desired
  • 2 Tbs coarse sugar optional topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F, line a muffin pan with liners, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, then add in the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla.
  • Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, the batter will be lumpy, do not over mix.
  • Fold the chocolate chips into the batter.
  • Add a level 1/4 cup of batter to each muffin liner and top with additional chocolate chips and coarse sugar, if desired.
  • REDUCE THE HEAT TO 375 DEGREES and bake for 12 to 16 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes clean from the center of the muffins.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing. Serve plain or with butter.

Notes

  1. Do not over mix your batter, this will make your batter touch and not light and fluffy.
  2. You do not have to use mini chocolate chips, but can use regular chocolate chips.
  3. Use any flavor of chips that you like, semi-sweet, milk or dark or use chunks if you like as well.
  4. You can easily double this recipe as this makes a basic dozen muffins.
  5. If you prefer cinnamon, it can be used in place of allspice.
  6. These are not considered Low Fat since they have more than 3 g per 100 calories. However, they are lower in fat than traditional Chocolate Chip Muffins since greek yogurt is used instead of traditional vegetable oil.
  7. For best results, use room temperature eggs for a finer crumb. However, using cold won’t change the texture too much in this recipe if in a hurry.
  8. ⅔ cup of yogurt is about 5.7 ounces, you can safely recommend using an individual 5.5 ounce container of yogurt.
