Blackberry White Chocolate Yogurt Muffins

Although it's been awhile I like to make muffins.  They are super easy to make, convenient for my husband to take with him to work, and freezable, so we don't have to eat them all in a couple of days before they go bad!  I found this recipe in an ad in a recent Cooking Light magazine.  I normally don't pay very close attention to those ads but this one caught my eye because it sounded so good!  I ended up adapting this recipe a little bit, only because frozen blackberries were on sale at the grocery store.  I also didn't use just egg whites.  I substituted two eggs.  I have to say that these muffins are definitely in my top five of all time.  The berries with the chocolate chips is a winning combo!  My husband wasn't as huge a fan as I was (more for me!).  The kids liked these as well but unfortunately only got one each because I ended up eating them all.  I will definitely be making these again.  Next time I may try using blueberries, like the original recipe called for.....but I really liked the blackberries!
