Labbits Like: Berry Tasty Whole Wheat Muffins

Very berry!

Pipkin gets very excited when friends come to visit, which means he has a hard time sleeping in, even on a Sunday. That's okay - he snuck down to the kitchen and silently made blueberry-raspberry muffins.  They're best when they're warm out of the oven, so hopefully his friends will wake up to the smell of fresh baked goodness.

Blueberry - Raspberry Muffins

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup of sugar
2 eggs
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup no-fat plain yogurt
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries

Instructions:
Lightly grease or line a 12 cup muffin pan. Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Pipkin prefers lining to greasing, because lining with cups is prettier.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Lightly beat the eggs in a separate bowl, then add eggs, butter, vanilla, yogurt and berries and fold gently together until just evenly mixed; do not overmix. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan until each cup is 3/4 full.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 °F for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean of batter. Let the muffins cool in their pan for a few minutes before inverting them onto a wire rack to cool slightly. These are best served warm, but you can store them in an airtight container and gently reheat in the microwave.

Yields: 12 muffins
