WIAW - Chobani Fruit Explosion Muffins

Confession: The AMAZING people over at Chobani Canada sent me several delicious samples of their Greek yogurt to try...months ago! (*Sigh*) I have been a bad blogger. Unfortunately, I got their samples a couple of days before my surgery, and the samples got a little lost in the shuffle (re: my hubby ate them all - obviously he needed the super Chobani powers provided in this nutritious Greek yogurt to take care of me).

So after purchasing several cups of my own to test and try out, I am official a Chobani Greek Yogurt convert. I have mostly been using them in my smoothies for the extra protein boost (each cup has 14g). But then this week I had the wild, but slightly brilliant idea, to use their yogurt to really amp up my fruit explosion muffins. And Ta-da! The Chobani Fruit Explosion Muffin was born!

Chobani Fruit Explosion Muffins

These muffins will give you half a serving of fruit and a decent dose of protein thanks to the protein packed Chobani. These are perfect for breakfast on the go, or a post-workout snack. I hope you guys enjoy!

*This Recipe will yield about a Dozen and a Half Large Muffins*

You will need: 
3 cups of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of salt
2/3 cup of coconut oil
2 eggs
2 cups of Black Cherry Chobani Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp of vanilla
2 cups of chopped rhubarb
2 apples peeled and finely chopped 
1/2 cup of fresh cherries (chopped, no seeds)


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F

2. Prep and chop up all the fruit. It should look like a slightly excessive amount - hence the name FRUIT EXPLOSION.  Yay Fruit!

3. Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. The batter should fairly moist, but not runny. Fold in all of the fruit. The batter should look lumpy and full of fruit before you portion it all out into the muffin cups.

4. Portion the batter out into the muffin cups and top each with a sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes and Enjoy!

Love your Favourite Darwinian Fail,


  1. What a great use for rhubarb! these look delicious. Cho is great for pancakes, too. And someone made a Thai curry with the plain yogurt. so many delicious yummy things to do with Cho!

    I like to freeze my muffins. then for a quick breakfast, I pop it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. nom nom.

  4. Love Chobani - I use them as a treat when I'm craving sweets - the protein helps keep me from continuing on to cookies, cakes, candy . . . whatevah. These muffins look tasty! I love that there is gobs of fruit in them, and I love rhubarb!
