When the going gets tough, the tough make muffins! It’s so therapeutic. When Rachel was little and had a bad day, we would make muffins after school, talk and laugh…it was, and is, so calming. I still make muffins for friends, neighbors and those that I love. I have tried so many different muffin recipes but this is still my number one go to, tried and true, can not dork it up muffin recipe!
This is a very versatile recipe…substitute any fruit you like, chopped peaches are wonderful! Vary the yogurt flavor as well and come up with your own favorite!
Great for holiday mornings.
