Although I haven't tried this recipe yet, I think it looks good and healthy. It has very little refined sugar and lots of oats. I found it on the back of a Great Value (Wal-Mart) Prunes box. I plan to make it soon for my prune-loving daughter. Since I haven't made it yet, the prep time is a guess.
- 1 cup pitted prune
- 1 ripe banana
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
- 1 cup oat bran
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Mix prunes and banana in food processor until combined well. Stir in milk, orange juice, egg and orange peel.
- In a separate bowl, mix oat bran,oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in prune/banana mixture. Stir until combined.
- Fill 12 paper-lined muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until centers spring back when pressed.
Good with some tweaking... I used the zest of 1 small orange and its juice that I mixed with the milk. I added to that mix the wheat bran (did not have oat) and rolled oat. Let stand while I prepare the rest. I always have Prune purée so I used 2/3 of cup and added 1/4 of cup of olive oil. I mixed fruits, oil egg and sugar as cakes are usually done. Finished with the oat mixture and then, flour and baking powder. I added 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup walnut. DO NOT over mix. Delicious! Perfect for toddlers!
These were very interesting. I liked them, but mom did not. I only used half the orange zest, but the orange flavor was quite powerful. The next day the flavor kind of softened though, and I thought they were much better.
