Morning Muffins

This is the recipe for the muffins I made.  It is based on several recipes from my “bible” (The New Doubleday Cookbook) but mostly, I devised it myself.

Suggested alterations:

  • seeds instead of nuts
  • dried cherries or blueberries instead of raisins and cranberries
  • figs instead of, or in addition to raisins and cranberries
  • increase the amount of dried fruit
  • molasses instead of honey
  • oil instead of butter

Morning Muffins

¾ cup whole wheat flour

¼ cup oat bran

¼ cup rolled oats

¼ cup wheat germ

¾ cup white flour

3 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

¼ cup raisins

¼ cup dried cranberries

2 tbsp chopped nuts

1 egg

¼ cup shortening (butter, melted)

1 cup milk

1 tbsp raw honey


Combine dry ingredients. Make a well in the center.

Combine wet ingredients. Add to well in dry ingredients. Mix until just combined

Fill greased muffin cups ¾ full.

Bake at 425 for 25 minutes. Makes 6 large or 12 small muffins.
