If you're tired of sweet breakfast muffins or just looking for a savory breakfast, try these--you'll love the smoky flavor from the Canadian bacon and the fresh-tasting combination of red bell pepper and scallions.

Make Ahead Tip: Individually wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds.
2 cups  whole-wheat flour
1 cup  all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon  salt
2   eggs
1 1/3 cups  buttermilk
3 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons  butter, melted
1 cup  thinly sliced scallions (about 1 bunch)
3/4 cup  diced canadian bacon (3 ounces)

Tip: Reheat & Run

Bake muffins on weekends and enjoy the leftovers for grab-and-go weekday breakfasts. Wrap leftover muffins individually in plastic wrap, place in a plastic storage container or ziplock bag and freeze for up to 1 month. To thaw, remove plastic wrap, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds.
Savory Breakfast Muffins Recipe at
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

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

Whisk eggs, buttermilk, oil and butter in a medium bowl. Fold in scallions, bacon, cheese and bell pepper. 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).

Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown, 20 to 22 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.

Forget it.
Not worth the effort. Bland and boring. Don't bother.
