So, here was the plan. The plan was for me to take my sweet baby girl to dance class and type out this blog post about Apple Oatmeal Muffins in peace out in the lobby of the building where the class is. Here I am. I have a comfortable chair, a full battery on my new laptop, and finally a little uninterrupted time to sit down and think out something pithy and profound. But what has happened in actuality is that the baby in the next room is screaming, a covey of kids just came stomping up the stairs like a herd of elephants,some kid has his video game turned up full blast and these people next to me are carrying on a conversation about some something another about some football coach somewhere. All I wanted was a little quiet. It looks like I’m not going to get it.

Ok, mini rant over.

Back to these delicious Apple Oatmeal Muffins.

You know why I like muffins? They are infinitely customizable. They have a basic formula that you can really mold to fit whatever it is that you have available to you. Perfect for anyone who is trying to pinch their pennies and keep leftovers to a minimum.

The apple/oatmeal combo is a classic one and my kids love it. I can’t get them to eat a bowl of oatmeal but I can get them to eat oatmeal muffins. Go figure.

If you want something besides apples, feel free to swap out the fruit, blueberries would be good. No oatmeal? substitute more flour or whole wheat flour. You get the picture. But for today, I’ll stick with this Apple Oatmeal Muffin combo.

  1. I have oatmeal pretty much every day of the week for breakfast… I’m thinking I should give these a try instead for something new-ish. LOL
