If you're tired of sweet breakfast muffins or just looking for a savory breakfast, try these! You'll love the smoky flavor from the Canadian bacon and the fresh-tasting combination of red bell pepper and scallions. If you absolutely need a little bit of sweet, try drizzling a little natural honey on top, or a small dab of fruit jam.

What you need: 

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup thinly sliced scallions, (about 1 bunch)
3/4 cup diced Canadian bacon, (3 ounces)
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
Muffin tin with 12 cups

How to do it:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, pepper and salt in a large bowl.
  • Whisk eggs, buttermilk, oil and butter in a medium bowl. Fold in scallions, bacon, cheese and bell pepper. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just moistened. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan (the cups will be very full).
  • Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Loosen the edges and turn the muffins out onto a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
