Recipe Ingredients for Savory Roasted Red Pepper, Basil and Feta Muffins

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
6 ounces roasted red bell pepper, patted dry and chopped into 1/4-inch dice
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large egg

Recipe Directions for Savory Roasted Red Pepper, Basil and Feta Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and position an oven rack in the center. Lightly coat the muffin tin with Pam spray

  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in the large mixing bowl.

  3. In a small bowl, stir together the feta cheese, roasted bell pepper, and chopped basil. Set aside.

  4. Pour the buttermilk into the measuring cup. Add the olive oil and the egg and whisk together until well blended.

  5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the well and stir gently. Mix just until the batter is smooth and flour is combined- do not over mix.

  6. Fold in the red pepper mixture until evenly distributed in the batter.

  7. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the tops feel firm and a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean. Transfer the muffin tin to a rack and let cool for 5 minutes.

  8. Gently run a thin knife or spatula around each muffin to free it from the pan, lift out the muffins, and transfer them to a rack to finish cooling (careful, these are tender while hot).

  9. Serve warm or store airtight at room temperature for up to 2 days or frozen for 1 month. Reheat room temperature muffins in oven at 375 for about 8 minutes or in microwave.
