- 1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cardamom
- 4 Earl Grey teabags
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (non-fat or whole milk will work)
- 1/4 cup olive oil (or melted butter)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 large egg at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp 2 percent milk (or almond milk, half-and-half, or even water)
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with non-stick spray and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, gently whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cardamom, and the contents of the teabags. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, olive oil, honey, egg, vanilla, milk, and lemon zest.
- Add your dry ingredients to your wet and mix until just combined.
- Divide your batter evenly among muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- These muffins will stay fresh in an air-tight container on the counter for 2-3 days, and in the fridge for a couple days afterwards.
- The tea flavor does grow stronger as the muffins sit. I don’t mind this, but if you prefer to avoid this you could freeze the leftover muffins after a couple days.
