Very Berry Muffins!



I love strawberries, but you can use any kind of berry for this recipe!


    1 T flax seeds (grind)
    1 c chopped berries  (your choice)
    1 c quick oats
    1 c lowfat buttermilk (or condensed milk)
    1 c whole wheat flour
    1 t baking powder
    1/2 t baking soda
    1 egg
    1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
    3/4 c brown sugar
    1 t vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray muffin pans with nonstick spray or line with paper liners. In a small bowl, combine the oats and buttermilk, and let stand at room temperature for five minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the flour baking powder and baking soda. In a large bowl, use a mixer to beat the egg, applesauce, and brown sugar for 3 minutes at medium speed. Add the vanilla and combine. Blend in the oat-buttermilk mixture. Stir in the flour mixture just to combine. Try not to overwork the mixture. Fold in berries. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and top with a sprinkle of flax seed. Bake 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
