I think many people misunderstand what a muffin is...the Otis Spunkmeyer muffins, for instance, are little more than cake disguised in a breakfast-friendly package. These Oatmeal muffins are more like what muffins started out to be. Simple (albeit somewhat bland) additions to a meal. I find that they are perfect in their simplicity, a wonderful base to a dollup of jam. The original recipe I had called for 1/4 to 1/2 cup of honey or molasses instead of sugar and was a nice 'non-jolting' way to begin the day. They are a good base to add fruit or nuts. I like banana with pecans; chopped apple and cinnamon; dates with extra molasses. Tailor them to your tastebuds, but don't mistake them for a cake-like muffin. These are much more substantial, and you won't be hungry in an hour.

I altered most of the ingredients for a healthier alternative, and they always turn out great! I use soy milk instead of regular milk (I use chocolate or vanilla flavoured, then I leave out the sugar in the recipe). I use applesauce instead of vegetable oil. Whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. And if I use plain soy milk, I use honey instead of the white sugar. Basically this adds soy protein and fiber, while cutting down on calories and fat. A delicious alternative to a store bought granola bar.

I've made this recipe many times now and tried lots of additions - one mashed banana w/ pecans, blueberry and grated lemon peel, grated apple and cinnamon... etc... all have been good. I've also increased the sugar to 1/3c (and sometimes use brown) and substituted buttermilk for the sweet milk - this recipe is incredibly easy and versatile and has become my new base muffin recipe! Thanks, Tony!
