3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups lowfat buttermilk**
3 T canola oil
1 cup thinly sliced scallion, green part only
1 cup diced extra lean ham
1 cup grated 50% light sharp cheddar cheese
** If you don't have buttermilk use 1 1/3 cups skim milk with 2 tsp. white vinegar stirred in. Let sit for a minute to curdle.
In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and canola oil.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until moistened. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin - the cups will be very very full!
Bake until the tops of the muffins are golden, about 25 minutes. Let muffins cool in the pan for 15 minutes then remove from pan to cool completely.
Wrap individually in plastic wrap to store in fridge for 3 days or put in freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat by wrapping in a paper towel and microwaving for 15-30 seconds.
