TGIF!!!! Does anyone else agree??
So I guess this must be the week for cooking because I have another recipe to share. For quite a few years now my Mom has been making these muffins, they've become quite a standard in their house these days. Every time I stop by I'm tempted to grab one from her "cookie jar" where they can always be found. They are oh so yummy, but also so good for you. Even Patty boy likes them, that in itself says a lot. She also switches them up by adding different fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, or bananas. I also like the fact that they are mini (bite size) muffins, great for popping in before a
work out for a boost of energy or to snack on throughout the day.
I made a batch of these last night and usually keep just a small bowl out at a time, the remainder freeze great until you are ready to eat. This recipe makes at least 50+.
1 cup flax seed
2 cups wheat flour
1 1/2 cups ground whole oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 can mandarin oranges
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup eggbeaters
1 cup buttermilk (I make my own with skim milk)
1 cup splenda brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
Any fruit you choose to add (thawed and drained)
Heat over to 350. Spray a mini muffin pan (24 count) with non-stick spray. Add all dry ingredients in bowl and set aside. In blender add mandarin oranges, oil, eggbeaters, buttermilk, brown sugar and blend well. Then add baking soda. Combine liquid ingredients to dry ingredients. Fold in fruit. Mix well. Pour into muffin pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
