Sunburst Muffins

Sunburst muffins

Every month, I participate in a fun recipe swap event called the Secret Recipe Club. Each member is secretly assigned to another member’s blog, and they have the month to peruse the recipes and decide what to make. It is one of my favorite things about blogging. Each month, as soon as I get my assignment, I go through the entire blog that I am assigned to and put recipes that sound good into a folder for a second look. This month, my assigned blog was Feed Me Seymour, written by Kim. Kim’s life seems to be surrounded around food, and I’m pretty jealous! Not only does she write an amazing blog filled with so many delicious recipes, but her mom is a pastry chef, so she grew up around sweet treats, and she works as a food editor, which sounds like a perfect job for a person who loves food! When searching through Kim’s blog this month, I set aside about 20 recipes for a second look. I mean, with recipes like Arancini DiRiso, Caramel Apple Walnut Handpies, Homemade Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows, Pickled Watermelon Rinds, Tijuana Taxi Margarita….I wanted to make them all! In the end, however, I chose these sunburst muffins, if for nothing else, their name. You see, I live in Buffalo, and if you’ve seen the news lately, you know we’ve been getting hit hard with some crazy winter weather, so a little “sunburst” is exactly what we need right now! So, while the weather outside might be frightful, these muffins were absolutely delightful! Thanks for bringing a little sunburst into my otherwise snowy life, Kim! 

1 1/2 cups Old-fashioned Oats
1 cup Flour
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
8 ounces Greek Yogurt
2 Bananas, mashed
2 Egg Whites
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
Zest of 1 orange

Line a muffin tin with paper liners and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. In another bowl, combine the yogurt, banana, egg whites, oil, and half of the orange zest. Add the yogurt mixture to the oat mixture and stir until just combined. Pour the muffin mixture into the muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Sprinkle the remaining orange zest on top of the muffins and serve. Makes 1 dozen muffins.

Those look like a perfect little taste of bright, summery cheer to enjoy on a cold and snowy day when you're missing the warmer weather. :) Happy reveal day!

What a great healthy grab-and-go breakfast! These would be good to have around the house for those extra holiday guests this season. Perfect choice this month!

I love the name of these muffins too and I also love baking with banana. Perfect breakfast food. Great SRC pick!

These sound so good I just whipped them up and they are in the oven right now!

Looks so yummy! Great SRC choice!

These look fantastic, and perfect for my youngest grandson. he can't eat dairy or eggs. I'm thinking the egg white wouldn't bother him - just the yolk. Oh, and he'd better share :-) Great pick this month.

I so enjoy a good muffin in the morning. I love the addition on yogurt. I think it makes them so much better. Great pick!

I am so, so glad you liked these muffins! I remember making them last winter when it was so cold and dreary, they really brightened my day! And now, we're basically in a repeat of the same weather so I might just have to whip up another batch. Really glad you liked them! :)

Nothing better than a muffin with your coffee in the morning.

Great choice to brighten up some bleak winter days.
