Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins

I did it! Something healthy(ish). Yes, I've done it before, but I have this sense of satisfaction when every once in a while I sneak in a healthy one amongst the others. My boys really enjoyed the muffins and I loved that they made a quick part of breakfast! I think the possibilities are endless with these- just sub in a fruit for the strawberries, add a bit more oomph with some nuts if you're feeling it.

Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins
(with wheat germ)
Adapted from :The Other Side of 50
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup chopped strawberries
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place muffin papers in 12-cup muffin tray.

Whisk together the flours, sugar and baking soda. Stir in the chopped strawberries.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, sour cream, butter and extracts. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until all is incorporated.

Divide the batter among the muffin cups.

Add the brown sugar/ oatmeal mixture to the top of the muffins.

Bake for 18-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Remove pan from oven and transfer muffins to cooling rack to cool completely.
