Ingredients
2 cups flour - whole-wheat
1 cup flour - all-purpose
1 tbls. - baking powder
1/2 tsp. - baking soda
1/2 tsp. - pepper, black ground
1/4 tsp. - salt
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups - buttermilk
3 tbls. - extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup - scallions (green onions), thinly sliced, (about 1 bunch)
3/4 cup - bacon, Canadian-style, diced
1/2 cup - cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup - red bell peppers, red, finely diced

 

Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

 

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

 

3. 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).
