1/2 cup plain yogurt3 tbs vegetable oil1 tbs lemon juice2 egg whites1/2 tsp lemon extract (optional)1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour3/4 cup white sugar2 tsp baking powder1/4 tsp salt1 tsp grated lemon zest1 cup frozen raspberries2 tbs white sugar for decoration (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper liners.
In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, oil, lemon juice, egg whites, and, if using, lemon extract. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until just blended. Gently stir in the frozen raspberries. Spoon batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle remaining sugar over the tops for decoration, if desired.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool muffins in the tin on a wire rack.
