Sweet Mama Rose's Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins By: Lindsey

My husband's grandmother, Mama Rose, is so sweet!! Derek says I don't make any of her stuff....and I will tell you why. It is all made from SCRATCH!! Lasagna, brunswick stew, muffins, cakes, etc. Whew!! It is good food, don't get me wrong. But, my goodness...who has time for recipes all from scratch?? So, I am going to try my hardest to start making some of them. This morning I made her Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins. Derek loves them and has mentioned to me before about making them. Keep in mind that Mama Rose is diabetic. Which means, that lots of things she makes is healthier for us. Ha! These muffins are a tasty, healthy treat for you and your kiddos. I love muffins! So, it is fun eating them when I know they have ONLY 1/3 cup sugar and apples and raisins in them. Parker, my son, also loved them. I didn't add any butter to the top of his and he ate them like crazy.

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup raisins
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup oil(I used vegetable oil)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup quick oats
1/3 cup sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cinnamon

Beat egg. Stir in remaining ingredients, mixing first to moisten. Pour into 12 greased muffin cups until 3/4 full. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Serve cool or piping hot with butter.

Just made these tonight, and they are DELICIOUS! Stephen says they're his favorite so far. I can't wait for the kids to eat them in the morning...Kate calls muffins "breakfast cupcakes." She's going to love them!
