I had a great Monday.

I actually made it to the gym, had a great band rehearsal (concerts galore are coming up), played music with some awesome kids, and made a delicious dinner. There are not many Mondays that I actually like (and hopefully this is a good start to the week!)

Add some delicious baked goods and then I have myself a really great day.

I have to be honest, I didn’t know how these muffins would turn out.  I mean, I see all these recipes for adding granola to pancakes and I thought to myself, “I want granola muffins.”  So with spring here, I grabbed my strawberries and tossed together these muffins.

I ended up falling in love with these muffins.

You know the kid that was always slightly strange and would use potato chips as a garnish on their sandwich?  That was me.  I love that slight bit of crunch the chips would give my sandwich.  I wonder what “crunchy” says about my personality!  The granola in these muffins added that perfect slight crunch I love.

These are perfect for breakfast on the go, camping for a weekend, or even just a sweet snack.  Plus with the hidden wheat, wheat germ, and soy milk, I don’t feel too terrible about eating one.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup white flour
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • ¾ cup sucanat
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1½ cup granola
  • 1 cup strawberries
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350˚.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first six ingredients and whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, eggs, and milk. Mix liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until barely combined (you still want lumps.)
  3. Fold in 1 cup of the granola and strawberries. Prepare 12 muffin tins and dip a full scoop of batter into each cup. Sprinkle with remaining granola.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until muffin springs back or a knife is inserted and comes out clean.
  5. This recipe would be great with other berries and/or different flavored granola- the combination possibilities are endless!
