Makes: 12 muffins

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 1-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or grease with cooking spray. 

2. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, egg, canola oil and yogurt to a mixing bowl and stir with a large spoon. Add the sugar and stir well.

3. In a separate bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt and whisk together. Add to the lemon-yogurt mixture, a little at a time, while mixing until the batter is well blended. Gently stir in the raspberries.

4. Fill the muffin tin with batter until 3/4 full. Bake until the tops are firm and slightly golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and serve.
