Muffins...Mediterranean Style!

I love Mediterranean flavors, especially the combination of feta, tomatoes and basil. It's perfect on Bruschetta, Crostini and just about any baked goods, so why not in a muffin right? I've just recently discovered all the new flavored Feta from the Athenos brand. I used the Garlic and Herb in these but I'm sure the Basil and Tomato would be great too! I'm SO glad I made these cuz they're just the perfect savory treat!

Ingredients: (6 muffins)

1 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 c milk
1/4 c butter, melted
1 egg, slightly beaten
8 sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil, well-drained, chopped
2 oz feta, chopped
1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Mix together flour, sugar, basil, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add combined milk, butter, egg, and tomatoes; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Gently fold in feta cheese.

3. Fill muffin pan cups about 3/4 full. Sprinkle each muffin evenly with Parmesan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean., Let Muffin Crowns stand a few minutes, remove from pan. Cool on wire rack.
