Sugarless Peach Yogurt, Blood Orange, Chocolate Chips and Almond Sliver Muffins


Ok! Before I start, this is a recipe that happened by accident. I made the muffins and discovered, after the fact, that I had forgotten to add the sugar. The chocolate chips and the orange add enough  sweetness that it’s not necessary to add sugar to the mix. But again, it’s just a happy accident.

This recipe is a hybrid, it’s a mixture of a yogurt muffin recipe and of a chocolate orange muffin recipe. If you wanted the sugared version, you would need to add 3/4 cups of brown sugar as well as 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.

This recipe makes 12 good portioned muffins (12 X 1/3 cup raw mix portion)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of peach yogurt

3/4 cup of milk

4 tablespoons of melted butter

2 eggs

2 cups of flour

2 blood oranges

1/2 cup chocolate chip

1/4 teaspoon of salt

2 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda

1/2 cup almond slivers

1/3 cup of brown sugar to be sprinkled on top of the muffins prior to baking the muffins

Cooking instructions

Peel the oranges and cut into small bitesized pieces

Drop into a bowl

Incorporate all ingredients into the same bowl

Mix properly

Take a muffin tin and spread the mix into the wholes (1/3 of a cup at a time)

Sprinkle a bit of brown sugar on top of each muffin

Bake at 350 for 22 minutes

The reviews 

Ben gave it three stars.

My husband gave the muffins 4 stars.

I’m quite happy with the reviews since the muffins are much healthier than usual. I loved substituting the yogurt with dairy like that. It provides a nice helping of calcium as well.
