Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Plum Oatmeal Muffins

Next up in the Plum Parade - muffins.  And I still have LOTS of plums remaining.  I used 2% buttermilk and 1% yogurt, so the muffins I made were slightly lower calorie than represented below.  In addition, by using 2-inch muffin cups and a standard spring loaded ice cream sized scoop that filled them almost level with the top, I made 18 muffins.  These muffins are not sweet in the least - closer to the taste of a baked oatmeal with fruit.  In fact, they would be good warmed, broken and served in a bowl with a touch of milk.

1 Cup Buttermilk                                                               3/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  2 Tbl Buttermilk                                                              1/4 Tsp Salt
  1 1/2 Cups Flour                                                              1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  1/2 Cup Wheat Flour                                                       1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
  1 1/2 Cups Old Fashion Oatmeal                                      1 Cup Plums, Unpeeled And Chopped
  1/3 Cup Light Brown Sugar                                              1/4 Cup Yogurt
  2 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder                                                 2 Tbl Vegetable Oil

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Line muffin tins with oil OR paper liners.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, yogurt and vegetable oil.  Pour over dry ingredients, add plums and stir until just  combined.

Scoop into your prepared muffin pan(s) and bake for 25 - 30 minutes.
