Oat and Yogurt Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are one of those comfort foods that never fail to bring a smile to my face. Not only are blueberries one of my all time favorite foods, but baked goods are one of my all time favorite things.

These oats and yogurt blueberry muffins are really wonderful. They are moist and light, yet pack a nutritional punch while keeping the calorie count low.

  • 12 ounces nonfat greek yogurt
