Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, plus a little more for sprinkling on top
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dry oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 3 tablespoons wheat germ
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • grape tomatoes, sliced
  • sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Butter or oil 12 regular-size muffin cups.  {If you use paper liners, oil them!  I did not and the muffins stuck to the paper a bit.  Didn’t take away from their deliciousness, but it was really annoying.}  In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, tomato sauce, and yogurt.  Add the cheese and spices and stir.  In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, wheat germ, baking powder and baking soda.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix until there are no dry patches.
  2. Fold in the red peppers.
  3. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups and top each one with a few slices of tomato and then sprinkle with cheese and sesame seeds. I left the tomatoes off of half of the muffins because I knew Tim (my plain-eating husband) would not want them there.
  4. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 13-15 minutes in the preheated oven.  Beware.  Your house will smell fantastic and if you are hungry your stomach will be growling.  When you pull them out they should look something like this:
