Chobani Giveaway

Hi y’all!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend :-)!

I can’t complain too much about mine. We got lots of rain, which we have desperately needed. You know how rain makes great sleeping weather….well, since it was the weekend I snuck in a couple naps!! I truly do love that my husband offers to let me nap on the weekends when he is home from work. He knows I love them and that just makes me love him even more!!

What else do I like to do when it is rainy and dreary outside? BAKE!!

I don’t do a lot of baking in the Summer because turning the oven on and heating up the house is just not appealing. In the Fall however, I tend to be a baking fool!! We will just call this weekend, uh………practice!!

Late last week I received another case of Greek yogurt from Chobani. I’m telling you, I could live off of this stuff it is so good. I seriously think I may have an addiction. Please don’t send me to rehab for it anytime soon, okay;-)!

Okay, so back to baking!!

 I had never used yogurt in my baking before but I figured it would be a great way to cut out the oil(at least most of it) in a recipe to make a healthier version.

Since blueberry muffins are always a favorite in my house, I thought I would get to work and make up a batch from scratch. The last time I made blueberry muffins they came from a box mix and that isn’t nearly as much fun. Originally, I was going to use the blueberry Greek yogurt but them I had another idea!! Since it is still Summer, and I love the combination of blueberry and lemon together(so Summery), I decided to be adventurous and use the lemon flavored yogurt instead.

Baking WIN!!!

Not only did my muffins turn out super moist and yummy but the lemon yogurt added a very nice but subtle citrus taste. I loved the slight hint of lemony flavor but to kick it up a notch you could also add some lemon zest to your batter.

Blueberry Lemon Oat Muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour(see below on how to make your own)
  • 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 TBSP canola oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 container lemon flavored Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 muffin pan with muffin cups.
  • Combine oat flour, whole oats, sugar, baking powder and salt in large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl mix the almond milk, oil, egg and yogurt together.
  • Add liquid ingredients to dry, mixing just enough to combine everything(will look like a thick bowl of oatmeal)
  • Fold in blueberries
  • Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full with batter
  • Bake for 17-22 minutes(depending on oven), or until set and golden on top.

Over the last couple years, I have started using oats and oat flour in my baking whenever possible. I am not a huge fan of the texture of whole wheat flour and white flour obviously isn’t as nutritious so oat flour has been a very good compromise. It makes a slightly more dense muffin but I like that because it is more filling which means I can usually satisfy myself with one. Okay, who I am kidding…..I still usually devour two at a time ;-)!!

Making your own oat flour is so very easy and budget friendly, too!! All you need is a blender or food processor of some sort and you are set!! I used my bullet-like blender and I was able to grind 2 cups in less than a few minutes.

How easy is that?!!

After tasting the batter while I was preparing these(yep, I took my chances) I could hardly wait for these to finish baking.

Once these babies were done, there was no way I was waiting for them to cool down before trying one. The only thing better than a blueberry muffin is one piping hot and topped with a pat of butter.

I will just call this a taste of heaven in my mouth!!

My family felt the same way because less than five minutes out of the oven and this was all that was left.

As I type this, there are only two left and the majority of them have been consumed by my daughter. I think it is safe to say that these are quite the kid-friendly food!! 🙂

    Woo hoo! I love Greek yogurt, but have never tried chobani … I live to cook with it in anything from sweet to savory in place of mayo and sour cream. My go to yogurt flavor is mixed berry, or blackberry, etc so that is how I know if I truly like it, so that would be the flavor it would have to try!

  11. Lindsey robertson
