Healthy Cranberry Yogurt Muffins

Cranberry Yogurt Muffins Made Healthy!

My healthy cranberry yogurt muffins are originally from the very first cookbook that I received as a gift when I was 9.

The book is simply called Muffins! Through the years I have looked for ways to make the original recipes healthier by adding more fibre and reducing sugar.

Healthy Cranberry Yogurt Muffins

This Cranberry Yogurt Muffin is perfect to make for breakfast on the go or for healthy snacks to take to work or school.

I eat these fresh for a couple of days and also store them in the freezer so I can grab one on my way to work. Simply healthy and delicious.

You can also use this muffin recipe as a base for so many other variations.

Instead of cranberries, you can use:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Chopped apples
  • Peaches

The choice is yours!

Healthy Cranberry Yogurt Muffins



    1. Hi Lynn, You could certainly use a dairy-free yogurt, or use apple sauce. These really are delicious – let me know if you end up making and what substitute you use! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. We made these muffins and they were delicious! We used chocolate chips instead of cranberries so they weren’t quite as healthy as yours though. The kids gobbled them up!

    1. So great to hear!! I love that you used chocolate chips – I know my kids would appreciate that lol I’m going to give that a try next time ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. These look great and pretty simple to put together too. I’ve never had much luck with cupcakes. Mine always turn out super dry!

    1. The yogurt in these muffins make them nice and moist. These are pretty hard to mess up if you want to give them a try ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yeah, adding yogurt is a great way to get some protein in the muffins. It makes the muffins moist too!

    1. These are actually a standard that I keep in my freezer ๐Ÿ™‚ They are great to freeze. If I’m heading out for the day I’ll grab one and by the time I’m hungry for a snack it’s defrosted.

    1. Hi Emily – You can also try with blueberries or raspberries (whatever your kids fav berries are). Enjoy!
