Hello all– When our 3 grand-girls (and their parents) were packing to move to California from Shanghai, I emailed the girls and said, “I’m about to go grocery shopping to get food for when you come. What should I buy for you?” They emailed right back, “peaches, cookies and strawberries!”
Lucky for us strawberries are just coming into season here. So strawberries in hand, Charlotte and I baked up these fruity muffins last weekend. Hot from the oven, they were oatmeal homey and strawberry sweet. We thought they were A-OK!
STRAWBERRY OATMEAL MUFFINS
1 cup oatmeal– regular oats or quick oats
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 to 8 large strawberries, cut to small chunks
Mix the oatmeal, milk, brown sugar, oil and egg. then stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Finally fold in the strawberries.
Scoop the batter into the muffin pan lined with muffin papers. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes–until they are browned and firm to the touch. Makes 10.
