A sunny Sunday morning. Grumpy, on a rare occasion, had to work all weekend. I was slightly lost because I’m usually making a waffle breakfast on Sunday. I wanted something to eat so I went to the pantry and saw the Special K Fruit and Yogurt cereal box. Problem was, I’m not a huge cereal fan and I did not feel like cereal. Then I remember that when I bought groceries the day before I had bought strawberries. A thought formed in my head and I came up with these Strawberry Yogurt Muffins.

Strawberry Yogurt Muffins
I love how the sunshine and the cheeriness of these muffins make me feel so happy 🙂  While today wasn’t as warm as yesterday, the sun shone bright.  The kitties hung out at the sliding glass door, soaking up the heat and watching the birdies.  It was a feel good day and these muffins contributed to it.  I also love that these muffins are low-carb, low-sugar, and low calorie!

These wonderful spring-y muffins also are only 3 WW Points Plus. Have a couple with your cup of coffee in the morning and your still good for your meal points!
These were not hard to make at all.  One bowl, mix the wet ingredients, stir in the dry, then add the berries and voila, pretty, tasty muffins!   🙂  This is definitely a recipe you will want to try to welcome in the spring!
