Printable Recipe

Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 22- 25 mins
Rest Time: 5 mins

Makes 12 muffins

2 cups flour, whole-wheat
1 cup flour, all-purpose
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp pepper, black ground
¼ tsp salt
¾ -1 tsp dried herbs (I used Italian blend)
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp butter, melted
½ - ¾ cup scallions/green onions, thinly sliced, (about 1 bunch)
¾ cup smoked turkey diced or shredded
½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
½ cup red bell peppers, finely diced
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded & finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

2. Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, dried herbs, pepper and salt in a large bowl.

3. Whisk eggs, buttermilk, oil and butter in a medium bowl. Fold in scallions, turkey, cheese, jalapeno and bell peppers.

4. 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 & very firm. I used a large ice cream scoop.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes

6. Allow muffin tins to rest on a rack for 5 minutes before serving.

4. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 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.
