Add in about 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg or cloves if desired! I made these muffins using 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 1/2 cup oil and they still turned out wonderful...frost them with cream cheese frosting!

Just sweet enough! I substituted applesauce for oil and they came out moist and springy.

Made these today. Although the recipe sounds perfect as written, I'm always feel compelled to add my own tweak. I didn't have any shredded coconut so I added drained pineapple tidbits. I also subbed out the full cup of oil for 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/2 coconut oil. Everyone loved them.

The kids loved this recipe and I loved all of the goodness. I used 1/2 yogurt and 1/2 oil as you suggested and they turned out perfectly moist and quite springy. I subbed whole wheat flour for some extra fiber and protein. Thanks
