Apricot Yoghurt Muffins

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A delicious Apricot Yoghurt Muffin recipe that’s easy to prepare and perfect for freezing and popping in the kids’ school lunchboxes.

Fruit muffins are always a great addition to the kids’ lunch boxes, and this apricot muffin recipe is no exception! This recipe is super easy to prepare. I often make a batch over the weekend and freeze so that I can add them to the kids’ lunch boxes through the week.

These Apricot Yoghurt Muffins are so quick to prep that you could even whip up a batch whilst you are waiting for dinner to finish cooking in the oven or on the stove top.

TIP: To mix things up, consider switching out the apricots with apples for another fruity flavour!
