I have told you guys about my love of lemon before…well, I have another lemon recipe to share with you! :)
I might be the only one on the planet that is not a big fan of the new Lemon Chobani.
I pretty much am in LOVE with all of the other flavors, but I just can’t get past the lemon flavor. I know it’s really odd because I normally really like any lemon flavored things. I think it’s because I like to eat my yogurt for breakfast with different fruit mixed in. Banana + lemon is just not a good combination, in my opinion.
But to bake with the Lemon Chobani, well, now that is a WHOLE different story ;) I have been trying to think of the perfect recipe to use this flavor in…and I think I found it! Remember when I made the Double Strawberry muffins? In that recipe I used Strawberry Chobani Greek yogurt. I changed that recipe up & have used it to make Lemon Poppyseed Muffins. To make it even better, they are only about 130 calories each!
Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
-2 cups whole wheat flour
-1 cup Splenda (or your choice of sugar substiute)
-1 tsp. baking powder
-2 tsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
-1 (6 oz) container nonfat lemon Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
-2 egg whites, beaten
-2 tsp vanilla
-1 tsp poppyseeds
-1/2 tsp lemon peel
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.Mix together the flour, Splenda, baking powder, baking soda, & salt in a large bowl.
3. In a separate bowl mix together the applesauce, Greek yogurt, egg whites, & vanilla.
If you feel the need to fancy your muffins up, as I did, then you can use a powdered sugar glaze. All I did was take about 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, a few drops of almond milk, & 2 drops of lemon juice- that was enough for 2 muffins.
^Just wanted to show you a picture of the inside of the muffin as well.
These are really good, and you know what? I really like poppyseeds..like a lot! (I keep typing ‘poopy’ instead of ‘poppy’- oops! :) ) They kind of just pop in every bite. I guess it just goes to show I like texture in my food.
If you are not a fan of whole wheat flour, then you can also use all purpose flour. I know some people just prefer regular flour because some people don’t like the ‘grain’ taste of whole wheat flour. Personally, I do, but to each is own :)
Here are some fitness/ exercise/ health sites & links that I have found interesting this week, maybe you will too. :)
