With all the weather reported in the northern and northeastern states,
it seemed like a good time to revisit this post!
While you are sitting in the mornings with that steaming cup of coffee grasped in your warming hands, watching the birds at their feeders, and feeling pleased that they are enjoying the bounty you have placed before them, you could be enjoying a special winter treat that's good for you, too!
Hearty Breakfast Muffins
2 C whole wheat flour 1/3 C vegetable oil
1 C wheat germ 1 C milk
2 tsp. baking powder 1 egg
½ tsp. baking soda 1/4 C molasses
2 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 C honey
1 tsp. allspice ½ C raisins
1 C mashed banana 1/2 C chopped nuts
In large bowl, combine dry ingredients except raisins and nuts. In small bowl, stir together wet ingredients, including egg. Add wet to dry and stir until just blended. Add raisins and nuts. Fill 12 greased muffin tins. Bake at 375 for about 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 large muffins.
Substitute pumpkin, grated apple, carrot, or zucchini for banana for a different treat.
