Nutty Currant Oatmeal Muffins

IMG_0096Hello friends–  Oatmeal.  You know it’s good for you.  And I like it just fine as long as it is loaded with all my favorite goodies– pecans, cranberries, brown sugar, bananas, walnuts, currents, pecans, granola, berries…  So I do love these pretty little muffins.  You can add any or all of these little goodies to make your muffins scrumptious.  This version has currants and lots of walnuts, so good hot from the oven or split and toasted the next day.

1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup currants
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup walnuts

In a mixing bowl stir together the oatmeal, milk, brown sugar, currants, oil and egg.  Then add in the flour, baking powder, salt and nuts.  Mix just until everything is moist and drop into muffin pans lined with paper wrappers or sprayed with cooking spray.  Bakes at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until they start to turn golden on top.

P. S. –Last week when Willa came to lunch, she brought a generous jar of pineapple orange marmalade her daughter had made.  The prettiest jam and so, so good on muffins (or anything else for that matter).  I’ll try to track that recipe down, if I can, and send it on to you…
