These tasty muffins are a great way to clean out the refridgerator! The recipe came from a family cookbook and has always turned out great! Be sure to write down what you put in because they might not come out the same way twice!

I used leftover oatmeal in these. I also added a tablespoon of beet juice so they would be pink...this was for the little girl who was not enjoying the big or the little brother today. For oil I use coconut, and added chocolate chips, trader joes orange cranberries, raisins, and pecans....just the last bit in the bags because I was organizing the cupboards...they smell yummy. The kids loved them, and since all are grumpy today I think that is a compliment. I think the recipe is pretty easy to read if you decide what you are going to do and do it. I often change recipes to make them healthier, but if you think a recipe is there to follow with no thought...this may not be for you. Great recipe, thanks for sharing. I am printing this off as a emergency recipe...options are great when you don't want to get groceries in the middle of a snowstorm with three kids under five years.

I used 1.25 oatmeal 1.25 bread flour. I used yogurt and canola oil... And i added 1 cup each: chocolate chips and shredded coconut I've never heard of mixing yogurt in... Certainly i was baking longer then suggested (about 25min) But these are soooooo good! New family favourite! Thanks for sharing this.

Sounds like a good recipte but very poorly written and confusing---beware
