Makes 15 muffins


2 cups whole wheat flour

2 cups grated cheddar cheese

4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 eggs

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray muffin tin molds with non-stick oil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder.
  3. Once well mixed, add the grated cheddar cheese and bacon pieces and fold into the dough.
  4. In a second bowl, beat eggs, then whisk in water and vegetable oil.
  5. Pour wet mixture into flour mix and fold into dough until well combined.
  6. Fill muffin tins about 1/2 full and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Before you take them out, stick a toothpick in the middle of a muffin. If it comes out clean, the muffins are ready to come out.
