Ingredients
2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2/3 cup  finely chopped onion
2/3 cup  finely chopped red bell pepper
1/3 cup  whole-wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup  all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons  baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons  chopped fresh oregano, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon  sugar
1/4 teaspoon  garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/3 cup  low-fat milk
1/3 cup  crumbled feta cheese
1   large egg, well beaten
2 tablespoons  tomato paste
2 tablespoons  chopped kalamata olives
Directions
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring often, until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.
3. Whisk whole-wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, oregano, sugar, garlic powder and salt in a medium bowl.
4. Stir milk, feta, egg, tomato paste and olives into the onion mixture. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fill the prepared muffin cups two-thirds full.
5. Bake the muffins until lightly browned, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Tip:
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Serve at room temperature or reheat at 350 degrees F.
Equipment: Mini-muffin pan with 24 (2-tablespoon) muffin cups.

@Keostberg, I think it's quite possible to make it with mozarella. It's the same as choosing a different kind of topping on your pizza.

This sounds like a great morning snack to take to work with me. Sometimes easting fruit or protein snacks can get a little boring. This sounds like a great way to shake things up a notch. I'm going to freeze some of them and see how they do. Cookies are great at freezing so I don't know why muffins shouldn't be either.

The serving size isn't too "obvious". I'm guessing the N.I. is for 1 mini muffin. Sounds yummy but I'm guessing I'd have to freeze these so I'd behave & not eat the batch! LOL BTW.. KEOSTBERG - Feta and mozzarella are no where NEAR the same style or type of cheese so I'd venture to say NO you cannot substitute.

this sounds awesome. I get so tired of raw vegetables and fruit that doesn't satisfy - this would probably be exactly what i need to make it between meals!

I don't like feta cheese. Can I replace it with mozzarella cheese?

the whole recipe makes 24 (2 dozen), 2-tablespoon size, mini-muffins. So the nutrition information listed is for 1 mini-muffin....at least that's how I understand it.
