Oatmeal-Apple-Raisin Muffins
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup of milk with 1 ablespoon of lemon juice added)
  • 1 cup oatmeal (either quick-cooking or old-fashioned oatmeal; I like to use the old-fashioned)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Chop apple and put into a mixing bowl. Add the raisins. Measure out the remaining ingredients. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Grease muffin cups and fill to 2/3 full.
  2. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes, then remove from the muffin tins. Makes 14 muffins.
  3. Hint: Instead of greasing the muffin tins, use cupcake papers. That way you won't have to work so hard to scrub out your muffin tins.
  4. These muffins are really, really good. I added fresh chopped cranberries (cuz I had no raisins), and an extra 1/2 cup of milk. They rose high, and are nice and moist. Wonderful taste.
