CL testing - Whole Grain Blackberry Spice Muffins

  Cooking Light Magazine Jan/Feb 2006

2 C all purpose flour
1 C oats
1 C brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. apple pie spice

Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the following:

1 C skim milk
3 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 large egg

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until barely mixed.

Then add 1 1/2 C chopped frozen blackberries. Stir gently and fill muffin cups 1/2 - 2/3 full. Bake at 400 for 14-17 minutes. Cool in muffin tins for 5 minutes and enjoy!

(makes 18; 177 calories each; 3g fat; 3.5g protein)

Verdict: The texture was really nice with the oats and the spices added a new dimension. The blackberries added a tart background. These muffins are NOT overly sweet, we found them just right. You could substitute any berry for these if you like. Raspberry, blueberry, etc. I've eaten 7 by myself so far today.

Dave's vote: SO good. Please make these again.
