Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins
Want an oatmeal cookie for breakfast? My first bite into this muffin made me think of an oatmeal cookie. It was delicious -- and I bet if you added some raisins, you'd have a healthy oatmeal raisin cookie muffin! We made our version with apples, and they were delicious.
Light, fluffy, and delicious. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or an after school snack.
Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins - Adapted from someone at Curves for Women
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C white flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 C oats (I used quick cook)
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
3/4 C chopped dried apples (or raisins)
1 C milk
1/4 C applesauce
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease the muffin tins/cups.
Sift together flours, baking powder, salt and spices.
Stir in oats, brown sugar and fruit bits.
Meanwhile, beat the egg, milk and applesauce together in another bowl.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients until batter is moist. It's okay if the batter is lumpy, or a little runny -- the applesauce makes it that way.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full, and bake for 20 minutes, or until muffins are lightly browned.
Makes 12 muffins, or 6 jumbo muffins, or 50 mini muffins.
