Mrs. Mitchell’s Three Fruit Muffins Recipe
You loved them in your morning snack; now you can make them at home!
- 1 1/2 cups fruit – a combination of banana, pear, and apple (or applesauce)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup white flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Mash the banana. Cut the apples and pears in very small pieces. (Or, freeze the pears, and when you thaw them they will be easy to mash.)
- Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir.
- Add fruit, egg, sugar, and oil. Mix well.
- Makes 12 large muffins or 24 mini muffins. Grease your muffin pans. Divide batter into pans.
- Heat oven to 375F. Bake for 20 minutes (large muffins) or 15 minutes (mini muffins). Enjoy!
Try experimenting with different fruits and veggies such as frozen berries, peaches, grated carrots, or chopped green tomatoes!
If you like, add half a cup of extra goodies to the batter. Try walnuts, sliced almonds, raisins, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, or coconut.
If you like, try adding some tasty spices! Try 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon, ginger, or garam masala!
