More With Less: Cooking Adventure: Cinnamon-Topped Oatmeal Muffins


5. Cinnamon-Topped Oatmeal Muffins, pg. 71

Another recipe from the More-With-Less Cookbook. (Here is where I started this journey.)

Rating for this was 7 of 8.

As usual I did not follow the recipe as written. Sometimes I do, but usually I do not.

My changes?

In the first list of sifted ingredients I used 3/4 cups of white flour and 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour. I like the taste of a bit of whole wheat flour in a muffin or biscuit. The rest of the ingredients stayed the same in that section.

I used the recommended amount of oatmeal and raisins.

BUT that section where the wet ingredients are added, I did change those a bit. Well, more than a bit… I liked the idea of adding applesauce to the recipe so instead of a full cup of milk I added 1/2 cup and 1 cup of natural applesauce. It seemed a bit wet so I added and extra 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour. If I did this recipe again I would not add the extra flour, 20/20 hindsight.

In the topping I changed that also. I sprayed the tops with non-stick cooking spray and then sprinkled them with a mixture of 3 T. sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp nutmeg.

These came out wonderful. I doubled the recipe and all but 4 were gone when we left for church.

Have fun with the recipe!! Enjoy 🙂
