Oatmeal, Apple and Raisin Muffins

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
2 Eggs
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.
