LIbrary Cookbooks

My girls love to visit the library & we try to go once a week. Almost every week one of my girls will choose a cookbook. A couple of weeks ago Alaina picked the Sesame Street cookbook B is for baking. The first day we came home, she marked all the recipes she wanted to try with a sticky note. One of the recipes she has made is the Abby Cadabby's Disappearing Strawberry Muffins. We kinda have a problem in our house of following a recipe exactly as it is written, so I will share with you what we made & you can check your library to see if they have this cookbook to make the original.
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup olive oil
1 egg
2 cups of fruit (any kind)

~In medium bowl mix the dry ingredients (first 7 listed above).
~In a large bowl mix the yogurt, oil, and egg.
~Stir the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until mixed.
~Add fruit. The original recipe used strawberries, Alaina wanted to mix her fruit, so she used strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, and blackberries.
~Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes.
~Makes 12 muffins or 24 minis.
