My Last Post for Awhile-Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins

I am sad to say that this will be my last post for a while. I am experiencing physical problems, that have limited my baking and cooking abilities, so I can't enter as many posts as I would like. Until I find out what the exact problems are, I am unable to focus on my blog. Plus, I have several Dr. appointments and tests ahead of me.

I have met many wonderful friends in my short period of blogging. Before I started blogging, I had no idea there was a whole new world on the the other side of my screen. The Foodbuzz  community is wonderful. Don't be surprised if I pop in and visit one of your blogs occasionally. If any of you out there are experiencing health issues and blog occasionally, I'd love to hear from you.  Leave me a comment, and I will get in touch with you.

Now for the recipe for these moist muffins loaded with old-fashioned oatmeal, grated apples, and raisins with a Vanilla glaze and sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. These muffins make a wonderful breakfast, after school snack, or dessert. I adapted the recipe from

Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins

1 c. oatmeal
1 c. milk
1 c. raisins-(You could also use dried cranberries.)
1 peeled, chopped apple, I grated the apple about 1/1/2 C
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cinnamon
Vanilla Glaze
1/3-1/2 cup powdered  sugar
1-2 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix the oatmeal and milk together in a large bowl. Add the raisin, grated apple, beaten egg and vegetable oil. Stir.In another smaller bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Stir the combined dry ingredients into the oatmeal mixture only until moistened.
Line 12 muffin cups with liners and fill 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cool 5 minutes, remove from pan. Serve warm or cooled.

When cool mix glaze ingredients in small bowl until a thin consistency to pour from a spoon. Drizzle glaze over cooled muffins, and sprinkle with a small amount of mixed cinnamon and sugar.
