Ingredients for Average Betty’s Apple Oatmeal Muffins:
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter (melted) or canola oil
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 apple (peeled, shredded – at least 1 cup)
I pledge allegiance to the muffin…
Preheat oven to 375 (F).
In a bowl add sour cream to oats.
Stir in milk. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat two eggs and add vanilla. Set aside.
Peel an apple.
Chop into quarters and remove core.
Use a box grater to grate the apple quarters.
Look at all that juice!
In a large mixing bowl, add brown sugar and whisk to remove any lumps.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to brown sugar.
Add cinnamon and nutmeg to mixture and combine.
Create a well in the center of dry mixture.
Pour beaten egg mixture and melted butter into well. NOTE: Make sure melted butter is not hot or it will cook your eggs!
Fold dry mixture into egg mixture until combined. Mixture will be stiff.
Add oat-sour cream-milk combination.
Fold until combined.
Add shredded apple and all juice that comes from it.
See the pool of fresh apple juice?
Stir just until combined and your batter is done.
For insurance, spray muffin tin with a little Canola Oil in the bottom of each hole. You can also use muffin papers.
Fill muffin cups with batter. These muffins are dense and do not rise too much, so fill the cups fairly full, if not brimming :)
These are mini-muffins, but of course you can make regular-sized muffins.
Bake 375 (F) for 20 – 25 minutes.
Allow muffins to cool in tins on a rack for about 10 minutes before attempting to remove from tin. Makes 12 regular sized muffins or 24 mini-muffins.
