  • 2 cups Strawberry Greek yogurt (non-fat) 500 g (about a container)
  • 15 whole fresh strawberries
  • low sugar maple syrup (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Mix all ingredient (except greek yogurt ) together.
  • Pour batter 2/3 full into muffin tin lined with paper cups.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.Cool.
  • Fit pastry bag  with 1M tip and fill  to ½ full with greek yogurt. ***See video in notes, if you're not sure how to pipe with a 1M tip. And use the 2nd technique - the 'rose swirl'. 
  • Pipe greek yogurt onto pupcakes . (if you don't have a pastry bag, cut a hold in the end of  zip lock and swirl it on)


  • Garnish with strawberry and serve with low sugar maple syrup (optional)


NOTE: If you're not sure how to pipe the topping on to the pupcake, check out this video: How to frost a cupcake with a 1M tip  * Use the second one (the rose swirl). Keep in mind that the Greek yogurt is runnier than the icing, so it won't be as firm of a swirl (compared to using icing). 
NOTE: You can make 12 regular sized pupcakes, then use the remaining batter to make mini pupcakes. Or it makes approximately 40 mini pupcakes.
