Muffin mania

Yesterday morning I had an appt. at the bank at 8:30. I left Graham sleeping and when I came back, decided to make these muffins. But, I was feeling really hungry, from my blood adventures the day before. Instead, I made oatmeal (just with 1/3c.) so I could eat right away.

I made the muffins after breakfast, for Graham’s breakfast and to bring to my parents and grandparents.


I got 12 muffins and 10 minis.

Oatmeal Berry Muffins

Adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod, who adapted from Joy the Baker

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 cups oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (I used 1 tsp.)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk (I used 1% milk)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (I added this, too)
  • 3/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (I used 1 c. frozen raspberries and blueberries)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a muffin tin with paper cases or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a medium bowl combine applesauce, buttermilk, sugar, oil, egg, and extracts. Make a well in dry ingredients and add applesauce mixture. Stir until just moist. Fold in berries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. I got 12 regular muffins and 10 mini-muffins.

Bake for 16-18 minutes (I baked 20 minutes, I think, but my oven runs cool).



We went out to Mississauga,stopping to look at furniture stores along the way.


Had to have a muffin along the way! We took four to my parents’ house (and did four loads of laundry!) and four to my grandparents’ apt (and had a nice visit).

Dinner with my mum and sister was lots of fun (burgers!!) and then we went to a birthday party.


More on my Sunday later today. Have a great one! 🙂
