Apricot Yogurt Muffins

 

2 cups flour 

1 egg 

3/4 cup sugar 

1 cup Greek yogurt 

1/2 cup melted butter 

1 tsp baking soda 

1/2 tsp salt 

2 Tbsp milk or oil 

1 cup chopped dried apricots 

 

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Boil 2 cups of water in the microwave. Place apricots in the boiling water for five minutes to soften. Set aside.

 

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Create a well in the center and set aside. Mix yogurt, melted butter, egg and milk in a separate bowl just until combined. Pour into dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not over-mix.

 

Drain apricots and add to the mixture. Fold in gently. 

 

Place cupcake liners in muffin tins (alternatively, you could simply grease the muffin tins). Fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full with batter. An ice cream scoop works perfectly for this. Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
