Yogurt Honey Health Muffins

The addition of yogurt not only makes these muffins moist and nutritionally sound, but they will keep in an airtight container for 3 days and still taste wonderful. If cake flour is not readily available all-purpose flour can be substituted. The muffins will be slightly more dense, but will taste just as good.
