Dr. OZ had the the cutest guest Marjorie Johnson on his show today. She gave her recipe for her awesome Apricot pecan oatmeal muffins. A must try for a yummy healthy snack.Ingredients
Makes 12 muffins
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour to make them healthier I would ditch the all purpose flower and add Prairie Gold 100% Wheat flour. It can be bought at most stores.
1 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup canola oil. You can also swap out the oil for applesauce for a healthier treat.
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
DirectionsPlace oats and buttermilk in a bowl. Stir to combine. Cover and let stand for 20-30 minutes. In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in apricots and pecans. Add oil, egg and brown sugar to the oatmeal mixture and combine well. Pour the oatmeal mixture into the flour mixture. Stir just to moisten the dry ingredients. It will look lumpy. Divide batter into 12 greased muffin cups.
