If you are new to my Blog-Welcome! I am so happy to have you visit. You can read my original post regarding the 100 muffins in 100 days (Julie & Julia "Christina" style) here: http://butterflykissesntastydishes.blogspot.com/2010/01/julie-julia-christina-style-100-muffins.html If you love yummy baked goods, then be sure and subscribe in the box on the right to receive my blog updates via email.
Today's muffin is a Yogurt Spice. I changed it up a little by substituting Vanilla yogurt for the plain yogurt to give it more flavor. Also, the recipe called for apple pie spice, but I used pumpkin pie spice instead. It calls for 1/2 cup of mixed dried fruit, but I used raisins. Any dried fruit would work-I bet cranberries would taste yummy. If a three-year old's opinion is to be taken into consideration, then let me just say that these muffins were pretty awesome. My son devoured an entire muffin and said "thank you, mommy, for my fuffin!" :-)!
I pray your day is full of joy and that you are "delighting" yourself :-)!

Yogurt Spice Muffins
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Heaping ½ cup superfine sugar
Heaping 1/2 cup dried fruit (I used raisins)
4 teaspoons apple pie spice
1 cup lowfat yogurt (I used Dannon Vanilla)
2 large eggs
6 tbsp canola oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Farenheit. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with 12muffin pan liners. Sift together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and apple pie spice in a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and dried fruit. Lightly beat the eggs in a large bowl, then beat in the yogurt and oil. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the beaten liquid ingredients. Stir gently until just combined; do not overmix. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until well risen, golden brown, and firm to the touch. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
