"Time-tested," "Lose weight without effort," "What do you have to lose?" Does this health information sound familiar? Yes, we are bombarded with information about nutrition and/or health! How do we separate fact from fiction?

Oatmeal and Apple Muffins


1 c. quick-cooking oatmeal

1 c. buttermilk

1 egg, beaten

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. canola oil

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 c. apple, diced, not peeled (about 1 small apple)

Optional topping (1 Tbsp. sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon)


Preheat oven to 400 f. Mix oatmeal and buttermilk in a large bowl and allow to stand for 15 minutes. Add beaten egg, brown sugar and oil to the oatmeal mixture. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined (Over mixing may result in lower-quality muffins with peaked tops and tunnels). Finally, gently stir in the apples. Spray muffin tins with nonstick spray (or use oil to grease them). Fill the muffin cups about two-thirds full of batter. Sprinkle the tops with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.

Makes 12 servings.
