Ingredients

  • 80g full-fat greek yogurt
  • 80ml vegetable oil
  • 200g soft light brown sugar
  • 2 medium free-range eggs

  • Deep 12-hole muffin tray, lined with large paper muffin cases

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C/150°C fan/gas 3½. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the yogurt, oil and sugar until smooth. One at a time, whisk in the eggs, then stir in the rest of the ingredients with a pinch of salt until just combined – don’t overmix.
  2. Divide the mix among the cases (it will fill them generously), then push the reserved blueberries into the top of each muffin. Bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer pushed into the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

  1. Vary the filling by swapping the blueberries for raspberries or chocolate chips.

  2. They’ll freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost, then warm them through in a low oven for 5 minutes before serving.
