Supah Fruit Muffins

I made these up this morning. I was craving muffins and happened to have a bag of all fruit trail mix lying around. They turned out really good, so I thought I'd share.

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. non-aluminum baking powder
1/2 cup unrefined sunflower oil
3/4 cup mape syrup or agave nectar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. vinegar
1 cup Soymilk
1 cup all fruit trail mix

Sift all dry ingredients together and whisk all wet ingredients together. Combine. Fold in fruit. Spoon batter into a muffin tin with muffin cup liners. Bake at 325°F for about 30-35 minutes.

mushy homemade burgers

I've attempted to make my own homemade burgers several times. 
They always taste great but the middle of the burgers always seem to be a bit too mushy. 
I've tried to cook them at a lower temperature for a longer period of time but that doesn't seem to completely fix the problem. 

does anybody have any tricks? 

I have added flour or such substances to many previous recipes and it hasn't helped much. 
And the recipe I tried last (actually tonight) was made with rolled oats and flour and was a VERY thick mixture, so I wouldn't consider any too runny.
