Mindy's Comments: I've made these for years. They're so good, even my kids like them. They contain no artificial sweeteners, unless you use sugar-free yogurt (which I do).

Comments from an OH Kitchen: Great, basic blueberry muffin recipe, and for 2 pts per muffin it's a keeper at my house. I could not find FF Vanilla yogurt so I ended up using 6oz of FF plain and 2oz of regular vanilla yogurt (which I usually have around all the time). They turned out very moist.
Amy's Comments: For a good FF Vanilla yogurt, look in at Stoneyfield Farms Organic Yogurt (no artificial sweeteners). Also, I found that my muffins do better if I skip the muffin wrappers and just spray the muffin tin with Bakers Joy (or Pam with flour). They come right out!

INGREDIENTS:

1 c unbleached flour & 1 c whole wheat flour (or 2 c all-purpose flour)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/3 c sugar
2 egg whites
1/4 c unsweetened orange juice

  4. Make a well in dry ingredients, and add wet ingredients.
  5. Mix just until no large lumps remain. Do not overmix.

  9. Remove muffins from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.
