Easy Fruit Muffins
One of my favorite things about the changing seasons is the fashions and flavors that go with them. I love when magazines have the basic things you wear for the season and all the different combinations you can make between them. What I love about these muffins is very similar. I make these muffins year round but put different fruit fillings in depending on the season. Regardless of the time of year, my favorite is pumpkin, but there are so many possibilities. Not only is this a great basic recipe, they are also fairly healthy.
For these easy muffins you will need:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 15 oz can of pumpkin, apple sauce, crushed pineapple or wet fruit of your choice
1 3/4 cup flour ( I use half all purpose and half whole wheat)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine the oats and milk. Let this set for about 10 minutes.
Add the remaining wet ingredients. If you use pie filling like lemon or cherry reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup. Make sure the wet ingredients are well mixed before you add the dry ingredients.
Put the batter into greased muffin cups. This recipe should make about 12 average sized muffins.
Bake the muffins for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until a fork comes out of them cleanly.
