Easy Greek Yogurt Morning Glory Muffins

You know those days when you have someone coming over for coffee super early in the morning and you need to feed them something yummy but life is majorly getting in the way? Yeah, I had one of those yesterday. The evening before I did have about an hour to bake. Cue feverish searching of the internet and the cupboards to see what I could whip up on short notice. This recipe was already *pretty* healthy when I started but by subbing non-fat Greek yogurt for the oil, it became even healthier.

Even though they are healthy, these muffins got two big thumbs up from everyone in my household even though I made them the night before.  Moist and delicious, you can’t even tell that they are low fat!
