Banana Berry Muffins

Makes 10 muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup white flour

1/4 cup rolled oats

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup mashed bananas

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese, small curd

1 egg white

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup frozen mixed berries (I used 3/4 C. shredded zucchini & 1/2 C. frozen blueberries)

I also added some ground flax 

Preheat oven to 365 degrees. In a large bowl, combine sugar, mashed bananas, cottage cheese, egg white, and vanilla extract. In another bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder, and baking soda.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir for ~10-15 strokes, just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in 1 cup frozen berries.

Place muffin liners in a muffin tin (regular size) or spray with nonstick spray. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full with batter. To the top of each muffin, add a couple of remaining frozen berries. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with a dash of sugar. (I didn't do this part)

Bake for ~15-18 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool ~ 5 minutes before serving.
