  • 400
    g any flavour yogurt (about 1-2/3 cups)

    teaspoons vanilla
  • 2
    cups flour (can be white or whole wheat)

  • Preheat oven 350°.
  • Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or spray with Pam.

  • In a separate bowl mix together flour and baking powder.
  • Gradually add the flour and yogurt mixtures alternately to the sugar mixture.
  • Fold in blueberries.
