Why I Love This Recipe
These muffins are not only tasty, but they're also a good source of fiber.. Using Canola oil also increases the health benefits of these muffins.
Ingredients You'll Need
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
