1 cup rolled oats
1 cup milk or buttermilk (I used buttermilk cuz Deb told me they would be richer and it’s true)
1 cup apple sauce
1 cup granola (I used homemade, but store bought is fine)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Options- Deb uses 1/3 cup raisins. I didn’t as we aren’t fans. She suggest currants as well. Or nuts. Or raisins. Or any combination of these things.
Combine the oats and milk and granola in a bowl and let soak for about 1/2 hour or so. When time’s up, mix the apple sauce, brown sugar, and egg into the oat mixture. In another bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together and then add into wet mixture. Divide into muffin tins.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Side note- me and my sis both love sprinkling demerara sugar on the top. When buying this some places use what looks like dark brown sparkly sugar as demerara. I prefer the lighter kind that looks like tiny beige glass crystals. My sis can find it in BC easily enough, I however have trouble finding the right kind here.
