Here in North Carolina, strawberry season has been in full swing. They rarely make it more than a day or two once they come home from the farmers' market and it always takes me a couple of weeks to get enough of these fresh, red, ripe strawberries to reserve some for baking. This week on the blog, check out our Marvelous Oat Bran Muffin Mix made with fresh strawberries! With this complete mix, all you need is water and heat (and in this case a few strawberries) and you can have something great to eat!
Making this mix is so easy and the muffins are perfect for a post-workout breakfast
or an on-the-go snack-if they last that long!
Following the directions on the back of the bag, I start with 2 cups of Marvelous Oat Bran Muffin Mix and add 1/2 a cup of water. For this recipe, I diced 3 large red, ripe strawberries from my local farmers market and mixed them in.
Next, I fully incorporate the strawberries, making sure not to put too much pressure on them. Just fold them in gently and spoon the batter into a regular muffin pan filled with muffin papers. Be careful to distribute the strawberries evenly, they may appear to sink to the bottom, but if you give them a few minutes you will see them peek through the batter.
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, let cool for 10 minutes (if you can!) and enjoy!
