Berry Muffins

Another great recipe from Simply in Season. This is extremely versatile!

The basic recipe is as follows:

Dry ingredients: 1 1/2 C whole wheat flour, 1 C rolled oats (alternatively you can skip the rolled oats and instead add berrymuffins 0021/2 C additional wheat flour and 1/2 C raw wheat germ. OR use an additional 3/4 C whole wheat flour and 1/4 C flax seed meal), 1 T baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon (optional).

Wet ingredients: 1 egg, 1 C milk, 1/4 C oil, 1/4 C honey.

The star: 1 1/2 C blueberries or any kind of berries, fresh or frozen, or go crazy and substitute an equal amount of shredded summer squash.

Sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar and  Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

The Review: DH was taken off guard by the whole wheat flour, and said it could have used some sugar sprinkled on top. I did sprinkle some, but will do more (or maybe use a bigger sugar?) next time. He still ate a few though. I thought it was good, not too sweet but kind of wholesome. The oats and raw local honey came through. Almost makes you not feel guilty for eating sweets.
