1 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup canola oil
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
100g granulated sugar 100 grams
80g brown sugar packed – 80 grams
200g all-purpose flour
150g whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1cup fresh blackberries
3/4 cup fruit jam of your choice
- Preheat oven to 175°C and line 3 muffin pans with parchment paper or use non-stick pans and grease lightly.
- Use a whisk to combine the Greek yoghurt, oil, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in the granulated and brown sugar until completely incorporated.
- Add the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and stir just until combined. Fold in the fresh raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries from NRTC Fresh.
- Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into the bottom of each parchment paper, spreading it to cover the bottom completely. Top with 2 teaspoons of jam and cover with the remaining batter (about one tablespoon per muffin cup), covering the jam fully.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown, the toothpick comes out clean, and batter around the berries appears set. Cool to room temperature and top with whipped cream and more berries from NRTC Fresh.

1 medium bell pepper, yellow
1 bell pepper, red
1 bell pepper green
A handful of Coriander and mint leaves (optional)
