These muffins are moist, tender and wholesome. They contain oats, quick cooking oats type and i would like to consider them as kind of nutritious and energy boosting muffins even though i do not know the nutrition facts about these muffins. This is our 26th bake at The Home Bakers ( THB ) and i have used blueberries instead of cranberries and melted butter instead of canola oil. Most of us agreed that these muffins are not sweet but it is really okay for me..just slab some jam on it and it will turn into some sweet muffins :)
Below is the half of the recipe that i made for 9 muffins , for full recipe and method, please refer to Kit of I-Lost in Austen, the host of this bake. To view the group baking, you can click here
I am pretty satisfied with these muffins and happy to link these to Cook Like A Star event organised by Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids and Doreen of My little Favourite DIY and hosted by Vivian of Vivian Pang's Kitchen with the theme OATS. Crazy about oats? Head over to Vivian's site to get some inspiration from others on what to do with oats.
1/2 plus 1/4 cup of quick cooking oats/ old fashioned rolled oats
1 large egg
1/4 cup of light brown sugar ( add more if you prefer sweet muffins )
1/4 cup canola oil ( i used melted butter )
1/8 cup dark molasses ( i replaced that with orange juice )
1/2 cup cake flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cups fresh / frozen blueberries
*the taste of orange juice is hardly detectable, therefore i think you can just use honey or dark molasses as per original recipe or all buttermilk.
