Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Serves: 12
This is a great base recipe to add fun fillings of your own


  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 200 g low-fat natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbs canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • mix-ins- choose from the list below or create your own!


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 12-hole muffin tray with oil spray.
  2. Mix the flours and sugar together in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the yoghurt, oil, egg and mix-ins
  4. Add this wet mixture to the flour and sugar mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix.
  5. Spoon into muffin tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Note: This mixture will make 24 mini muffins. Smaller muffins will cook quicker so check them after 15 minutes.


  • Banana-rama: 2 mashed bananas + 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • Coco Jambo: 1 small can crushed pineapple (well drained) + 2-3 tbs dessicated coconut
  • Halloween: 3/4 cup grated pumpkin + 1 tbs allspice
  • Apple-y ever after: 1 grated apple (skin on) + 1 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Berry-licious: 1 cup fresh or frozen berries
  • Tutti-fruity: 3 tbs chopped dried fruit.
Comment: Storage: Individually wrap in cling wrap and freeze for up to 3 months and place in lunchboxes still frozen. They will be defrosted by recess time.

Healthy tip!

Having a party? Serve vegie sticks and water crackers with salsa rather than high-fat chips and dips.
