Choc Chip Raisin Yoghurt Muffins

These choc chip muffins that I made recently were a hit at breakfast.  Not only were they easy to make, they were moist as I added more yoghurt than what was called for in the recipe.  This is a very simple and straightforward recipe that will yield consistent good result.
