Apriocot Yogurt Muffins


Hey Naptime readers! I’m Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road back again to share this yummy Apricot Yogurt Muffin recipe with you. I love warm muffins fresh out of the oven on a Sunday morning!


My family and I recently went on a week and a half long vacation. We returned home late Saturday night only to wake up on Sunday morning and realize that we didn’t have any food in the house! Has that ever happened to you? We were kind of tired of restaurant food, so I spent a few moments opening cupboards and mentally making note of what I could use to whip up a nice homemade breakfast for us. One egg, flour, sugar, apricots and a carton of Greek Yogurt are what I came up with.

It worked, because these muffins were so soft and delicious, I can’t wait to make them again! You could easily swap out half of the flour for whole wheat flour like I did with my Zucchini Carrot Muffins. Or use fresh apricots, or really any soft fresh or dried fruit would work as well.

Apricot Yogurt Muffins - These muffins are so soft and delicious!



  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk or oil
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil 2 cups of water in the microwave. Place apricots in the boiling water for five minutes to soften. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Create a well in the center and set aside. Mix yogurt, melted butter, egg and milk in a separate bowl just until combined. Pour into dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not over-mix.
  4. Drain apricots and add to the mixture. Fold in gently.
  5. Place cupcake liners in muffin tins (alternatively, you could simply grease the muffin tins). Fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full with batter. An ice cream scoop works perfectly for this. Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  1. These muffins look so delicious! They make my mouth water. Can’t wait to try the recipe!
    End of tenancy cleaning Surrey

  2. I don’t see how many muffins this recipe makes…..

  3. I modified this recipe slightly. I used 1/2 cup of Splenda Baking Blend in place of the sugar. The muffins are delicious. They came out soft and yummy. Perfect for breakfast or with my mid-morning coffee. Thanks for a great recipe.

  4. I’ve been looking at a bag of dried apricots in my refrigerator for a long time and wondered when I bought them and for what reason. Tonight I am in a baking mood, just made some brownies, and I opened the sealed pouch of dried apricots to find out that they are small snack size bags..which is okay, so I started looking for a recipe for apricot muffins and came across the Apricot yogurt muffins and I will make them tomorrow. Need to buy the greek yogurt. I use 1/3 cup of plain yogurt in my banana nut bread recipe and everybody raves about how moist it is..found the recipe in Arizona Republic newspaper probably 20 years ago..Have a lot of bananas to make Banana nut bread this weekend. Thanks for sharing your apricot muffins recipes. It sounds delicious!

  5. Is there any way to use fresh apricots for this recipe? I just bought a beautiful bag of apricots and I want to use them up before they go bad!

  6. Just wondering if you could use fresh apricots?

  7. Easy to make and delicious!

  8. This muffin is perfect! Thank you! My husband does not like “dry” desserts, so I thought I will have them for my own and have muffin for breakfast throughout the week. He ate six of them, just after I took them out of the oven :D Seriously good!
