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!

Hi. I was just wondering if you think your apricot yoghurt muffins would be ok to freeze?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife May 25, 2015 - 8:48 AM

Hi Ellen, Absolutely i freeze mine all the time and they defrost just like i have made them.:)

can I substitute canned fruit ?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife July 28, 2021 - 11:34 AM

I haven’t tried that myself. I would imagine that using canned fruit would add extra moisture to the recipe. You may have to adjust the other wet ingredient levels. If you do try this, please let me know how you go. Kat

Does it have to be greek yoghurt? Would it work with a soy yoghurt as a substitute as my daughter is diary free?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 20, 2016 - 8:20 PM

Hi Vicki, you would be fine to substitute it for the yoghurt your daughter can use, sometimes I use vanilla yoghurt depending what I have in the fridge 😉

Hello, just checking for your oven temperatures that you use on your receipes, are they for fan forced?

It’s a very versatile recipe thank you.

I’ve made a few changes, subbing in fresh nectarine or peach works beautifully. I sub a third of a cup of fast oats for 1/3 of the flour to make them a touch more filling, and I find that a third of a cup of sugar is ample if a mashed banana is added. Today’s muffins are with fresh plum.

Oh your tweaks sound absolutely delicious!
