It has been so long since I've made them I can't remember if I altered anything so here is the original!
Watermelon Muffins-shared from From Apples 2 Zucchini
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
3 tbsp oil
1 cup watermelon pulp*
1/2 cup watermelon juice
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together until just moistened. Divide into muffin pan and bake for 15-20 mins. They are done when a toothpick inserted in them comes out clean.
*To get watermelon pulp takes a bit of work and time. You must first cut your watermelon up and then place it on a towel. Squeeze the watermelon until all the juice is out of it, or what you can get out of it. I didn't do this very well but none the less it still made tasty muffins!
***These were incredibly moist and pink! I loved that they were pink! My watermelon was a bit chunky so next time I'll chop it up finer. I do wonder if it would have the same effect if it was just pureed...something to think about for next summer! I loved the flavor as it was unique!
