Yogurt and Banana Spice Muffins and a New Look!

Tags: ,

Hey Everyone, the new look made it safe and sound. Now, I know you all wear your heels to go grocery shopping don’t you, I mean who doesn’t? No, seriously I know I’ll miss that great Viking kitchen, but it was time for a fun change to celebrate another year and I love what Shannon at 8 Crazydesigns did for me.

I was so excited to get an opportunity from 3-A-Day of Dairy to do some writing for them. Check out my latest article for some surprisingly healthy Halloween Treats!

I posted a great year in review last night and blogger erased half of my pictures, so this is a test to see if this post will work! Wish me luck! Looks like I need to work out a few kinks! These muffins are really good and great for anytime of the day. I used low fat yogurt and bananas in place of the oil, so they are almost guilt free! Enjoy.

Yogurt and Banana Spice Muffins

Spice Cake Mix, 18.25 oz size

6 oz container low fat vanilla yogurt

2 eggs

2 medium overly ripe bananas, mashed with fork

¾ Cup water

2 Tablespoons powdered sugar for garnish if desired

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, yogurt, eggs, bananas and water until well combined. Spoon batter into 24 traditional size muffin cups that have been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 20-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from center of muffin.

2. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Garnish with powdered sugar if desired.

24 muffins

Thanks for your patience while I figure things out around here! I’ll re-post my year in review soon! Have a good week!

    Hi Tami,
    I knew there would be people who wouldn’t like my new look in fact my husband hates it too. I get so bored looking at the same thing, I’m positive it won’t be the last new look around here!

    I tried these when you first posted this recipe and they’ve become a staple item in this house ever since!
    I went to make them today (because I have over ripe bananas and we’re SO tired of banana bread!) and realized I had no spice cake mix. :( So, I tried them with chocolate- YUM! Kinda like a brownie, but not as rich. It was the only other cake mix I had on hand and I’m glad I tried! :)

    I just made the yogurt banana spice muffins this morning(great easy recipe!), however, the consistency turned out more like a cupcake than a muffin. The photo looks more dense like a muffin, just curious as to whether they should be like a cupcake or a muffin? How can I make them more dense like a muffin?
    Thank you in advance and thank you for all the great recipes and mouth watering photos!
