Fresh Fruit Muffins

(Here's one that I made up for breakfast, and everyone liked them and everything!)

2 cups flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup Splenda (artificial sweetener)
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups fresh fruit, chopped up (1 small banana in chunks and a cup of coarsely chopped strawberries was very yummy)
1 cup skim milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup Canola/ vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 400* F.

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl. Add fruit.

In another bowl, mix milk and egg, then add oil and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients. Fold together, mixing just til blended.

Divide into 12 paper lined or oiled muffin cups. Pop the muffin pan into the 400*F oven, then immediately reduce the oven temperature to 350* F. and bake for 15 - 20 minutes, til tops are lightly browned and the center of the center muffin tests done with a toothpick.

Mmmm! (make sure you share your fresh fruit and berry combinations with us in the comments section!)
