Something out of the ordinary

I once blogged recipes, like 2 years ago maybe? Do you remember that? I've since given it up as it's extremely time consuming with the camera, and the food, and the writing. Blech. Too much fuss for this munkee. I'll leave the food blogging up to the experts like this gal and this lady, and I'll stick to my own stuff. (Note to self: try to define what this blog is about so when peeps ask you , you don't stutter out crap like "you know, it's about stuff, like stuff that's pretty and stuff that I like.") I make myself barf sometimes.
Well, something changed on Monday. I got a hold of The Perfect Muffin recipe from my friend Jess. It's like the tabula rasa of muffin recipes. I, of course, fudged up the original recipe and the muffins turned out delicious.

So here it goes:

1 cup oats
1 cup milk
1 cup flour (you can half/half with whole wheat)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
pinch salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup oil

** now as part of my additions:
2 tablespoons flax seed
1/2 cup apple/pear sauce
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
brown sugar crumbled on top

Preheat oven to 375

Combine milk and oats in small bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add egg, flax seed, oil and apple sauce.Whisk together dry ingredients (including sugar) and fold in the oat/milk mixture. Fold over until barely mixed. Transfer to muffin tins/molds, sprinkle brown sugar on top and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Thanks Jess, it's not part of my official repertoire!
