Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ⅔ cup finely chopped onion
  • ⅔ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • ⅓ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup low-fat milk
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 large egg, well beaten
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Kalamata olives

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring often, until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.
  3. Whisk whole-wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, oregano, sugar, garlic powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  4. Stir milk, feta, egg, tomato paste and olives into the onion mixture. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fill the prepared muffin cups two-thirds full.
  5. Bake the muffins until lightly browned, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
