Great way to prepare any kind of muffins. Typical favorites have been blueberry, strawberry, cranberry, or a combination. They are not greasy or overly sweet, nor are they too dry. Uses lots of healthy alternative ingredients. I have been asked for this recipe everytime I make them. Depending on the fruit, you can also add 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the batter.
- 1 1⁄2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup fruit
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 cup old fashioned oats
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine all the dry ingredients and mix together. Then add the wet ingredients. Carefully add the fruit last.
- Pour batter into muffin cups, fill near to top. Sprinkle the mixed topping over the muffins. The sugar will bake into a "glaze" and the oats are for texture.
- Bake 15-20 minutes, until you can stick a fork in them and it comes out clean. Muffins will only rise slightly.
I made these with frozen cranberries -- most delicious muffins I made this month (and I make a lot of muffins)! Definitely a repeat recipe, can't wait to try them with different fruits. Thank you so much for posting.
These are truly excellent,buelow. I made them with fresh Washington state cherries and they got RAVE reviews. That sugar makes up for a lot of missing fat but the whole wheat flour adds to the healthfulness deliciously.
This was a really good, low fat recipe. I made it with frozen cranberries and orange zest and it was amazing! I can't wait to make it with different fruits.
