These muffins are moist, slightly sweet and ring in right around 130 calories each. Gotta love that! I found the originally recipe here but of course, had to put my own twist on it. My hubby and I have eaten these all week for breakfast - very delicious. Finally a muffin that isn't a cupcake!
Oatmeal, Apple & Raisin Muffins
Yield: 18 muffins
2 Cups Buttermilk
1 Cup Oatmeal
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Medium Apple, Shredded - do not peel
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
2/3 Cup Regular White Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
2/3 Cup Raisins
1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (I used almonds)
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degree Fahrenheit. Prepare muffin pan(s) by either greasing them really well or lining them with cupcake papers. Set aside.
Step 2: In a large bowl, mix together the buttermilk, oatmeal, eggs, brown sugar and shredded apple. Once combined, add in the remaining ingredients. Stir until just blended.
Step 3: Disperse the muffin batter among the prepared pans. I always use an ice cream scoop to measure out (1 scoop per muffin). Place in oven and bake 25-30 minutes.
After completely cooled, store the muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator. For a nice treat, when serving - split in half, lightly butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
