Mixed Berry Muffins

Since I woke up about 45 minutes before the alarm this morning (not unusual) and actually got out of bed (somewhat unusual), I baked muffins this morning. In the end, I tried not thawing the frozen berries and it worked perfectly fine. So I thought I'd pass along the recipe.

1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. oil (I used peanut oil, but you could use any bland oil you have)
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1 c. frozen berries (I used Trader Joe's Very Berry Medley, which has strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Having that in the freezer was the motivation for the muffins in the first place. I didn't thaw the berries first, but did slice the strawberries into about 4 pieces each.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Beat egg. Stir in milk and oil.

Combine dry ingredients. Stir into liquid mixture until flour is just moistened.

Fold in berries. Mixture will be lumpy.

You're probably supposed to grease the muffin tin, but I have a nonstick one so didn't bother. Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full.

Bake 20-25 minutes.
