Sheri's Kitchen 1

"Loving whole grain muffins and having a wonderful plum tree led to this recipe, my first submitted to AllRecipes. I hope you like it. I use Santa Rosa Plums with the skin, no need to peel."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Place the plums into a bowl; pour in water just to cover the plums. Stir in egg and molasses until the mixture is well combined. In another bowl, stir together the oat bran, rolled oats, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon until thoroughly mixed. Pour the plum mixture into the dry ingredients and mix just until moistened. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the muffins have risen and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes.

I'm sorry to have to rate a recipe so low, but these were actually inedible. There has to be ingredients missing from the recipe. There is no sweetener, nor anything other than water to add moisture to the recipe. They were very dry and bitter, and only tasting strongly of molasses. I had doubts as I was mixing these up, and was sorely tempted to add at least some sugar or honey, but gave benefit to the recipe. Again, I have to wonder if ingredients were omitted by mistake.


I just made these muffins. They taste great in a bite with plums, and my kids loved them. However, the batter is so thick that it's difficult to get it to spread in the muffin pans, and they did not rise at all. Very dry too. I will make them again, but I may soak the oats in the plum/water/molasses mixture first, and/or add applesauce to make them a little moister.


Have to agree with the previous reviews - this muffin is quite dense, heavy and dry. The kind of thing that turns people off of "healthy". That said, I used fairly tart plums, which I like, and the taste was better than the texture.
