Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffins

These little hands will grab a hold of ANYTHING and as if it’s just the thing to do put it straight into her mouth. However, unlike the pieces of lint I missed while vacuuming, these Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffins are a safe bet. And not only safe but good for you too! Packed with loads of protein and calcium for those growing little bones this is one snack your kids won’t mind having on repeat. And for us adults, slather one up in a little nut butter and you’ve got yourself a sweet (in the healthiest way possible of course) little snack under 100 calories!

Don’t do dairy?… NO PROBLEM!

These muffins are super versatile (as always) and you can easily sub out the whole milk and/or Greek yogurt for any non-dairy variety. However, I suggest sticking to plain/unsweetened options otherwise the flavor may vary slightly.
