Oatmeal Muffins

Paula sent in this recipe today. (I should mention that she sent in pictures for two previous recipes. "Cranberry Muffins" & "Coconut Cake". Her oven works faster than her digital camera! Go figure!) The demon of the kitchen writes:

I love grains and use (sneak) them whenever possible in baked goods. These are a great treat for breakfast.

This does honestly, scouts honor!, deserve a three in difficulty - but we will give it a two! Not only do you have to bake (that gives it a two as usual) BUT sheesh...we have to make a "well" in the middle and push all the dry ingredients to the side and then add the wet ingrdients. For people with two left hands like me...oy vey! I can just imagine my kitchen after that feat! But seriously, this is really a healthy treat and interesting to say the least (of course this she sends in without a picture because I bet she has two left hands too!). As you may have noticed originally it is Parve, as the soy milk is not "real dairy" milk. But if you substitute real milk here, well it is a dairy dish.

The pictures will eventually catch up to the submissions. I am limited to being the Insane Cook on the weekends. However, I will provide a pic tomorrow for the Graham Cracker Brownies if only to make you drool and accept the bribe.

I love also using grains other than wheat in my baking. I will defently give a try to this recipe this weekend. It'll be a nice change of pace. I'll be adding blueberries to the mix tho.

Thx!
