Melt-in-your-mouth Strawberry Muffins

I found this recipe on the metal seal/cover on a Stonyfield Farm yogurt container. Doesn't that name make your mouth water?

Melt-in-your-mouth Strawberry Muffins

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 eggs
1 cup Stonyfield Farm yogurt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped strawberries, fresh or frozen

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar and baking soda. In another bowl, mix eggs, yogurt, butter and vanilla. Toss strawberries into the flour mixture. Then pour yogurt mixture into flour mixture and stir. Spoon batter into greased muffin tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown. Yields: 12 muffins

****I followed the directions exactly. I used fresh strawberries and plain yogurt. I wasn't sure which flavor of yogurt to use since it isn't specified in the recipe. I decided to use plain since it has less sugar. Next time I will try vanilla. The muffins were really good, but I think the vanilla yogurt would make them even more yummy (for a sugar junkie like me).

I would rate this recipe at 4 stars.

YUM! we're getting fresh berries tomorrow (probably) so i'll have to try this! thanks for the tip - i've got brown cow organic vanilla yogurt around the house, so i'll just use that brand.
