Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins
A hearty breakfast or snack muffin with apple chunks, oatmeal, and raisins!
1 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour
1 cup quick or old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
1 cup raisins
1 cup peeled, cored, and chopped apple (about 1 medium-large apple)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
2. Add the egg, milk, raisins, apples, oil, and applesauce. Stir until moistened (don't stir too long!).
3. Pour batter into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until muffins test done (a toothpick or fork inserted comes out clean).
4. Cool muffins on a wire rack. Enjoy warm or cold! :)
This is one of my mom's most-used muffin recipes from my childhood years. Easy, hearty, and delicious!
If you have an apple on hand, everything else is (for us) pantry staples, making this one of those recipes you don't have to plan ahead to make! :)
I have made mixes for these muffins, putting the dry ingredients for one batch into a ziplock sandwich bag. When ready to make, just add the wet ingredients and bake! :)
