Ya! It really is!!
For a gal whose BFF is her sewing machine, that's a great excuse to do some sewing.
So, do you want to know what I have been doing?
I bet you thought I was going to say sewing....
Sadly, I haven't been doing nearly as much sewing as I would like......
Crazy, isn't it?
You would think that I would have been cranking out the projects on account of there being a whole month dedicated to sewing!
Well, I had a hankering for some of my favorite muffins, so baking was in order.
(Even though it is still over 100* here!)
These are called Cranberry Oatmeal Muffins.
They are so delish that I am quite certain they will become a favorite of yours, too!
They are easy and healthy to make. They freeze really well so go ahead and make a double batch!
CRANBERRY OATMEAL MUFFINS
1 C. Oats (I use old fashioned oats)
1 C. Sour Cream or Yogurt (any flavor)
(I prefer yogurt...it makes the muffins lighter & fluffier)
1 C. Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 C. Applesauce
1/2 C. Honey
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
(For the "ultra healthy" version, I cut the honey & sugar in half)
2 tsp. of grated Orange Peel
3/4 C. Dried Cranberries
Preheat oven to 400*.
Soak oats in yogurt for a few minutes.
Sift dry ingredients and add to oat mixture.
In a separate bowl, combine egg, applesauce, honey and sugar.
Beat until well blended.
Fold into dry ingredients.
Add orange peel and cranberries.
Stir gently to combine.
Cook 20 min. in a greased muffin tin.
So, there you have it!
I promise you will love these....even if you aren't a big cranberry fan.
They would be yummy warmed up with a little hot cocoa.
Especially all of you who are enjoying some cooler weather now that fall has hit just about everywhere but Arizona.
(yes. I am still whining about the heat- and, said whining, will more than likely continue until December.)I shared this recipe with my friend Sharla. She blogged about these muffins and their yummyness but added a frosting to them!..........Go check it out!
