If you read this blog for over a year, you probably know what day it is: it’s the best day of the year. At least for me. It’s my birthday. I can’t understand how some people can’t like their birthday. What’s not to like? People think of you, there’s chocolate and cake and you get to keep all the presents. In my book that makes a pretty good day. Like today.

Because I do want the people around me to enjoy the day as well: I made muffins for my work colleagues. I will celebrate this weekend with my friends and family but these delicious and (almost) healthy raspberry yoghurt muffins are for the people I spend most of my birthday with.


If only they knew how easy and fast those muffins are…

All you need is:
– 300 g yoghurt
– 60 g oil (sunflower seed or rape oil)
– 120 g sugar
– 1 egg
– 250 g flour (I used a mix of 200 g plain flour and 50 g wholegrain)
– 1 Tbsp baking powder
– 1 pinch of cinnamon
– 50 g raspberries (I used frozen raspberries but you can also use fresh ones)

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C. Mix the yoghurt with the oil, egg and sugar in a bowl. Sieve the flour with the baking powder and cinnamon into the mixture until well combined. Pour the raspberries in and slowly work them in.

Line a muffin tray with paper cups and add the mixture into each one. Bake for 20 mins.


I could gulp those little things in no time – and without a bad conscience. Perfect for a birthday – or actually any day. Now I’m off to have a (hopefully) great dinner with my boyfriend.


Now. Carry on!
