Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

My picky eating daughter asked if we could bake muffins together. We just happen to have the ingredients for these tasty little bites. They've made great snacks for us and they keep getting better with each day. My daughter has eaten more than any of us. I don't mind, they're healthy eats.

HERE'S ALL YOU NEED

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce or oil
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1 fresh egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Heat oven to 400ºF degrees. Butter a mini muffin pan.

Stir all the wet ingredients together in a small bowl. In a separate medium bowl, stir together the remaining dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stir just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Use a small scooper (holds 1 tablespoonful) to measure out dough into mini muffin pan.

BAKE 8-10 minutes. Immediately remove from pan to cooling rack. After they've cooled completely, store in a one gallon freezer bag. I highly recommend baking them a day ahead.
