Any substitute for Yogurt?

I make these frequently for my family and they always turn out delicious. The first time I made them with the topping but after that I've always made just the muffin, they are fantastic without the extra steps.

Very good. Doubled the recipe. I don't like overly sweet things so Cut sugar in half. Added about 1/4 cup flax and chia seeds. Used about 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips. Used 16 oz Greek yogurt plain. Dough is like a bread dough. Keep an eye on them while baking mine only took 15 mins - larger ones 20 mins.

Made them without the topping and they are just delicious. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.

mmm, yummy!! just pulled a batch out of the oven and they are espessially good warm!! I didn't have any yogurt so I actually just used some cream cheese mixed with a little heavy whipping cream and they turned out fine! I did the topping with just cinnamon sugar and chocolate chips and it added the perfect touch...I will hav to do these again in the future...(and if there are any young cooks out there like me,I'm 17, these are super easy and yummy) :)

This is my favorite muffin recipe by far. I have used vanilla or blueberry yogurt instead of plain and turned out fine each time. For the topping, I only use brown sugar and cinnamon for the topping, did not need the extra choc. chips. Very moist and tasty. Family loves them.

Yummy, moist, and a crisp top!I used sour cream instead of yogurt, and didn't do the topping. Liked it without! I think the topping would make them too sweet.
