These tasty little things will bring some zest to your sweet snack; making them perfect for a mid meal snack, dessert or pre-training fuel.
Makes 12 | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 25 mins
2 cups (280g) self raising whole meal flour
1/4 cup (50g) raw sugar
1/3 cup (60g) white chocolate melts (not choc chips - you want them to melt through)
3/4 cup (195g) milk
1 lemon, zested and juiced (~1/4 cup juice)
1/2 cup (150g) Greek yoghurt plain
2 extra large whole eggs
1/4 cup (55g) extra virgin olive oil (or macadamia oil)
1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat over to 170C and line / grease 12 x muffin holes.
In a large bowl, mix milk and lemon juice together. Not it will curdle, but that’s okay.
Meanwhile, in another large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, lemon zest, and chocolate melts together.
In you milk mix, add yoghurt, eggs and vanilla and whisk well for 1 minute until aerate and combined.
Pour into dry mix, along with oil. Mix to just combine (don’t over mix!).
Scoop evenly into muffin holes and bake for 22-25 minutes, until goldening and inserted skewer is clean.
Keep in fridge for 1 week... if they last that long! Heat up for 30 seconds in the microwave before serving :)
Tip: The key for these muffins is to use white chocolate melts so the chocolate oozes through the muffins to add fluffy-ness and that buttery texture.
You could also use orange instead of lemon (use half an orange).
