Nutritional values

Thanks to the tart yogurt dough, nobody here needs to worry about the waist line. With just 100 calories per piece, even figure-conscious cake lovers can enjoy the vitamin-rich minis without a guilty conscience. Yogurt is also an excellent source of calcium!

The muffins can be easily frozen without the fruit. Simply defrost them as required and cover them fresh with strawberries or other seasonal fruit. No strawberry time? - No problem, the yogurt muffins taste just as delicious with blackberries, apples or nectarines. To prevent the muffins from collapsing, do not open the oven after baking, but let it cool down with a small gap.
