Wet Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped broccoli (80g)
  • ½ cup finely chopped carrots (65g)
  • ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper (60g)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt (115g)
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (75g)

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour (245g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cook the vegetables first. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in skillet over medium heat. Add vegetables and cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened. Add seasonings and stir to incorporate. Set aside to cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the wet ingredients. Add the vegetables and combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Be careful not to over mix. Use a spatula (instead of a whisk) to gently stir together. The less you stir the mixture, the lighter and fluffier your muffins will be. Note that the batter will be thick.
  • Divide batter evenly into a greased, lined or silicone 12-cup muffin pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Take all the cold ingredients out of the refrigerator at least 15 minutes prior to cooking - milk, yogurt, eggs
  • Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup rather than scooping the flour out of the container or bag with your measuring cup.
  • See FAQ section above for best substitute for white whole wheat flour.
  • Do NOT over mix the batter. Stir until everything is just combined. It is supposed to be thick and lumpy.
