Sunshine Fruit Muffins

Ingredients

Dry

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

Wet

  • 1 cup Florida fruit (blueberries, strawberries or mangos), chopped
  • 1 Florida egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • oil or cooking spray

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder, then add fruit.
  • In another bowl, break the egg and slightly beat with a fork. Add milk and vegetable oil to the egg and mix ingredients together.
  • Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture in the large bowl. Using a mixing spoon, mix about 25 or 30 times, until mixture is slightly lumpy.
  • Line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly coat with oil or cooking spray. Carefully spoon muffin batter into muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 of the way. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • After the muffins have cooled, remove from the tin.
  • Wrap extra muffins individually in plastic wrap or heavy foil; store in a freezer bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.
