Chocolate Chip Muffins Made with Greek Yogurt

I love chocolate chips….and muffins….and cupcakes…and when I have to, I love yogurt {like when my husband mentions that I should eat healthier…hence my love of CHOCOLATE CHIP YOGURT ~ I get around it anyway I possibly can}.  A few weeks ago I was at the grocery store and saw something that caught my eye, Chobani Greek Yogurt Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Low-Fat Yogurt.

Almost everything I love in a food was in that title…and then….I picked up the tub of yogurt and turned it around….and….get ready for this….there was a mention on the back of a recipe for Chocolate Chunk Muffins.  Hold me back!!! I put the yogurt in the cart….headed for the checkout and spoke nothing to anyone.  This was mine….all mine! I couldn’t wait to look up the recipe and give it a try.  That Sunday morning when everyone was still asleep I got to work whipping up these Chocolate Chip Muffins.

When they were done and finally cool enough to eat I made myself a fresh cup of coffee with my Thrift Store Keurig and sat down for a special moment.  One bite and I knew…this was one of the best muffins I had ever had.  They were moist, rich, just the right density, full of flavor, sweet but not overwhelming.

These were Bakery Style…dare I say Coffeehouse Style Muffins.  These turned out so well that I can hardly wait to try some other recipes from the Chobani website.  When I do, I’ll be sure to let you know.
