Fruit and Oatmeal Muffins

Fruit and Oatmeal Muffins created by Outta Here

This was a recipe I put together to use up some dried fruit. They are a dense muffin and reduced fat. You can use a sugar substitute to even reduce the calories. I sometimes use an egg substitute, too. These muffins have become so popular with our friends that every time we have a tailgate party or golf get together I must bring them.

    I like the idea of the dried fruit in a muffin. I used 1/2 cup dried cherries and 1/2 cup currants. I think this needs something else, maybe a touch of either cinnamon or nutmeg. Oh, I also used pecans since I didn't have any walnuts. Made for Football Pool 2011.

    A nice change of pace to our muffin routine. They are a dense muffin but still have enough moistness that you don't feel you have to grab a drink right away. I used a homemade applesauce that had cinnamon and nutmeg already mixed in and then used dried cranberries (that is our family favorite!) and that combination was wonderful. I'd like to try it with dried apple chips too. Great with a cup of coffee in the morning and warmed up just a bit in the microwave. Thanks for sharing a nice muffin recipe! Congrats on your win in the 2010 Football Pool Week #1

    I loved the chewiness of these, and for being so low in fat, they are very moist. I used dried cherries. Will be making these again!

    These were awsome. I made exactly as stated except I used egg beaters instead of real eggs and wheat instead of white flour. I used a berry blend of dried fruit. Wonderful full of flavor and great texture.
