Only need a few cupcakes? This is the perfect recipe for you!
I see no problem with having a cupcake every now and then, but most recipes make at least a dozen cupcakes and it can be pretty tough to ignore those adorable little treats.
My solution: make smaller batches of treats so you're not tempted to eat way too many.
I tried them two ways to see which one had better texture & taste.
One batch had half butter half Greek yogurt. The other had all Greek yogurt.
Oddly enough, I think the all Greek yogurt was the one I liked better, but honestly, they were both good & I could hardly notice a difference.
They aren't super sweet so I like the icing, but you don't have to do it.
I like these better cold. That way you can't tell that they are whole wheat.
I made mine mini, so each serving is 3 mini cupcakes. But you can use regular muffin tins and make 2 cupcakes.
