So last night, just after supper, I got a phone call.  "hey, we need you to bring a snack to playschool tomorrow.  We've already got crackers and cheese.  maybe you could bring some dessert type stuff?"   Yeah thanks.  Make me bring the long to make stuff And ask for it last minute.... LOL
But anyways,  I did and these are what I made:



I ended up with nearly 48 mini muffins (obviously they are not all in this picture....).  And they were a hit (one kid ate 5.... and only one kid of 10 didn't like them).  Super moist, and maybe just a tad heavy, although thats probably because of the oatmeal. And have I mentioned yet that I made this recipe up on the fly?  Since its my own creation,  I thought I'd share Cheesy

Apple Oatmeal Mini Muffins
3 Macintosh apples (peeled cored and chunked)
Sprinkle of cinnamon (to your taste, I used maybe 1 tsp)
2 tbsp water
1 cup milk (heated)
1 cup oatmeal (quick cooking)
2 cups Flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 small eggs
1 Tbsp canola oil

In a small sauce pan combine apples water and cinnamon.  Cook over medium heat until apples are tender.  Smush. (aka turn into apple sauce I used a submersion blender thingy to make my sauce really smooth)  Meanwhile heat milk in a microwave safe glass bowl for 45 seconds.  Add the oatmeal.  In a large mixing bowl combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Add all the 'wet' ingredients and the eggs and oil.  Stir until just blended.  Bake at 375`F for 8-10 minutes.  This recipe will give you approximately 4 dozen mini muffins, if you make them into medium muffins, increase baking time.

*You can also add what ever extras you want, like raisins, coconut, chopped walnuts, chopped hazel nuts  etc.   I added raisins and coconut to the second pan of muffins, just to add variety,  some kids don't like raisins (how silly of them! Wink )

Oh and if you don't have a mini muffin tin, and have small children, I totally recommend getting one.  It has been the most used wedding shower gift.  And my almost 4 year old loves mini muffins.  That and there ends up no wasted muffin, as regular muffins are generally to big for toddlers.

Anyway, enough rambling.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I and the kids did.  Please let me know if you try out the recipe.  I'd love to hear reviews!

Thank you for this recipe Belladune.  This looks perfect for my "flour destashing" (for Passover).  Think I'll try this one in a bit.  Kids are popping over for a few hours today.  Thanks lot!!!
