Greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins

Happy hump day! Another day another muffin. I’m sorry guys, it’s come to my realization that I just love muffins! I recently posted my valentines day “stud muffins” I think I just loooooove breakfast that I continue to make muffins.
So, how about greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins. Holy moly.. they are  fluffy! They taste so good. I think Greek yogurt needs to be in everything. I would love to call these healthy but there is still some sugar in there. But, greek yogurt is in there.. so I guess they are 😉 anyways. try these for yourself! tell me what you think 🙂
