Even when you're really tired and dead, baking something is quite irresistible.
I had had my eye on this recipe for over a week, so I set aside Friday afternoon for making them. The recipe described them as moist and full of autumn spices and several readers said they were fantastic; some even said they were the best muffins they had ever made. It's hard to go against so much positive feedback...
I knew I had to get up early for MUN and I don't usually bake so late in the evening, but I really didn't feel like letting myself down and giving up on the beautiful recipe that had been open and gawked at on my iPad for days.
These came out perfectly round and- my favourite part- sticky on top :) I've only ever had that in my mum's banana muffins, so I was thrilled when I saw the tops of these.
I ran out of space in the muffin tray, so I made a bunch of mini muffins too! They're super fun to eat...
I brought a couple along for two of my friends to have in the car the next morning on the way to school and Z only wanted half because had a huge breakfast, so P snatched it from her and popped it into her mouth with a smile. If picky P liked them that much, they worked out.
Spiced Yogurt Muffins

These are healthy and full of calcium, too.
Note: If you're grinding your own spices, make sure you sift them before adding them to the batter. I had a few big pieces of clove, nutmeg, cinnamon etc. and they're not pleasant to bite into while enjoying a muffin. My allspice had gone off, so I just added some cardamom and some extra of the other spices, but I think I should look up a proper allspice recipe...
