I have a MAJOR sweet tooth when it comes to all things tangy. Lemon anything being my favorite! I’ve been doing my best to stay on track with eating better and becoming more active. These Lemon Muffins fit right in with my new regiment.
Currently I’m trying out Weight Watchers and I’m having some success. With starting a new lifestyle though, it takes some research. Did you know that you can substitute eggs and oil while baking for Greek Yogurt? AND it makes your baked goods stay…dare I say the word…moist!
This is definitely one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever done. That’s also saying a lot since I can’t bake to save my life. -Cooking is a different story-
This is all you need:
- 1 Box Lemon Cake Mix
- A Single Greek Yogurt (lemon or vanilla)
- 1 Cup Water
- Cooking Spray
- Muffin Tin
I preheat my oven to 375 degrees. Combine the cake mix, yogurt and water into a medium sized bowl. Whisk until fully mixed with no lumps.
Your batter may become fluffy if you let it sit for very long while waiting on your oven, if it does just give it a quick mix again before moving forward.
Spray your muffin tin with your favorite cooking spray (I like PAM with Olive Oil)
Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking on it at 12 incase your oven cooks faster than mine.
And Viola! Yummy, sweet and tasty lemon muffins. Did I mention that if you use the mini muffin size it’s only 2 PointPlus on Weight Watchers each? …YAAASSSS…
If you have picky eaters in the house, I bet you they won’t even know the difference. I know mine didn’t. 😉
