Strawberry Greek Yogurt Muffins

Strawberry Greek Yogurt Muffins
Total Greek Yogurt has just released new Greek Yogurt Split Pots and asked me if I would like a sample! Of course I did! I love Greek yogurt and it’s great for baking. I made a variety of desserts the last time Total sent me some samples (click here to see them).

I decided to make these into mini muffin loafs so I could use these adorable cases I bought in Switzerland at the Migros grocery store (similar to ASDA in the UK). It also is the first time I get to use my Clinton Street Baking Cookbook.

They couriered this little cooler over to my office. I got a very confused call from the guy that works in the mail room! “Kelly, you’ve got a delivery of …yogurt”, Me “I better come get it then” Guy in the mail room, “That would be good”.
