Sugar Aunts: Banana Greek Yogurt Protein Muffins Recipe

Banana Greek Yogurt Protein Muffins Recipe

We are nearing the end of our Cooking With Kids A-Z series!  I can't believe that my daughter and I have cooked our way through the alphabet for the past year. She loves cooking with me and I love the bonding time, so it's been a fun year of creating new recipes together.  We're up to Y for Yogurt and have come up with a Banana Greek Yogurt Protein Muffin Recipe that my kids are gobbling up.  It's a breakfast, snack, and lunchbox addition that is filling and moist.  You won't believe how healthy this muffin recipe is!

Besides the sugar in the yogurt and the natural sugar in milk and applesauce, there is no added sugar. (OK, I take that back.  I totally sprinkled brown sugar on the top of the muffin.  But, your getting such a small amount, and I mean, what is a muffin without crunchy brown sugar??)  BUT, you can leave the brown sugar topping off and just add the oats.
