These are simple and healthy muffins made from ingredients I always have around the house. I enjoy adding about 1/2 cup Craisins, but I bet they'd be good with other fruits or nuts thrown in, too. This recipe is from the Big Locust Farm Bed and Breakfast in Paoli, Indiana.
- 1 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1⁄2 cup milk or 1⁄2 cup soymilk (to make the muffins dairy-free)
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons oil
- 1 egg (or 1/4 cup Egg Beaters)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine oatmeal, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add applesauce, milk, brown sugar, oil and egg; mix until moistened.
- Put in muffin cups.
- Bake 20 minutes.
These were very tasty, but seem to be missing a little something. I think maybe some walnuts or raisins would do the trick...maybe even cranberries. But, this is a good basic muffin recipe. My only suggestion, other than the above, would be to add the brown sugar with the dry ingredients, because I think I had to mix a little too long to incorporate it when added with the wet, and we know what happens to overmixed muffins! Thanks for posting...I will make again with added ingredients. VERY EASY!
I really enjoyed these muffins. They are nice and moist and taste amazing!! I added craisons to them and it really adds an extra something. Thank you Kree for posting this recipe.
i like these, true , they do taste like somethings missing, i am tempted to add chocolate chips next time, but that just me because i think everyhting needs chocolate, but i was trying to go healthy and these are good choice for my family when i had all the ingredients handy. oh, and i had no applesauce on hand so i boiled some apples with some cinamin and blended it up and made my own yummy!! and more moist!
