Easy Strawberry Yoghurt Muffins

This is a collaboration with Woolworths and Oh So Busy Mum

To celebrate the launch of Woolworths Icelandic SKYR Style yoghurt, I’ve created this yummy strawberry yoghurt muffin recipe for you to enjoy. Icelandic SKYR Style yoghurt is strained with a special technique that removes the watery whey from the yoghurt which results in a thick and creamy texture. The yoghurt is also low in fat and high in protein.  Woolworths Icelandic SKYR Style yoghurt is available in 3 smaller varieties (120g tub) in natural, vanilla and strawberry (my favourite). Larger-sized tubs (700g) are only available in the no fat natural flavour.

These muffins are both lunchbox and freezer friendly, which makes them perfect to bake ahead of time and freeze for school lunches!
