I created these out of desperation one night, when I had a really bad
craving for a warm, aromatic treat! After refining the recipe a bit, I
find I like this version best.
NO FAT MUFFINS
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup oats
1 cup dry, ready to eat cereal (bran flakes work well)
1 cup water or juice
1 cup low fat soy milk or skim
egg replacer(prepared according to package directions) equalling 3 eggs
1 tbsp baking soda
1/2 tbsp baking powder
cinnamon, nutmeg to taste
vanilla and almond extracts
2-3 tbsp sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Spray muffin tins lightly.
In large bowl, combine prepared egg replacer and sugar. Mix well.
Add extracts and mix.
Mix in milk and juice/water well. Stir in oats and cereal until fully
blended. Mix in raisins.
In separate bowl, combine flour, spices, baking soda and powder.
Pour flour mixture into wet mixture and stir using a fork. (This is most
effective) Mix only until ingredients are blended and moist. Do not
overmix. A good way to tell if you're done is if there is no flour left
un-blended at the bottom or sides of the bowl, and the 'goop' has an
almost foamy texture and appearance.
Immediated fill muffin tins to the top, or a bit above. These will
rise wonderfully and provide a nutritious, filling snack.
Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.
