Homemade Muffins!

Marni Sumbal

Karel started making muffins last year and now I am hooked. We don't make them that often but with our training getting more serious, they are perfect after a hard weekend of training. We made several batches this past summer because our muffins are perfect for car rides when we travel to races. They take about 5 min. to prepare and about 10-15 min to bake.
I have two pictures of muffins that I made this weekend. The first batch was raisin, nuts and fresh apricot. The batch I made this morning were chocolate chips, nuts and raisins.
Here is the basic recipe that Karel and I use for our muffins. Then it is up to you to decide what to put in it!

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 egg
1 cup raisin bran cereal (if you don't like raisins you can use a bran flake cereal)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
Cinnamon (a few shakes)
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

1/4 - 1/2 cup water (add last after mixing the above ingredients)
I use butter pam spray for the muffin tray and I set the oven to 375. They usually cook in about 10-15 min but check around 8 min and give them a little push with your fingers. If the batter is firm, they are ready.

*For extra ingredients you can use:
Any fruit finely chopped or grated (ex. pear, apple, apricot, orange, banana, strawberry, blueberries, etc.)
Any vegetable (ex. you could do carrots and pineapples for a carrot cake type muffin or you could do corn and jalapenos for a cornbread type muffin)


Here's the batter (makes about 9 muffins but you can double ingredients for double the muffins!)
