Wheat muffins with berries

These are so delicous!!1 I couldn't find the dried fruit so I used a frozen medley of differant berries. I also added a little wheat germ with the flour mixture for added nutrition. These turned out excellent and it made 24 muffins instead of 18. I'm having a great/good for me breakfast all week!!!


Good Muffins

I left out the Cranberries, & normally hubby is not thrilled about wheat muffins, but he did like these, took the rest with him to work for coffee. Very good.

My doctor suggested that I needed more fiber in my diet and these not only fit the bill, but taste so very good! I will be making these often and freezing 2 at a time to take to work with me!

Fruity Muffins

Usually I don't like muffins, and I don't eat much fruit, but thought I would try these out. They are pretty good.
