Morning muffins

This morning before heading out for yard sales, I'm making muffins adapted from my very favorite book of its kind, Amy Dacyczyn's "Tightwad Gazette".  Because of my one-bowl system, I can mix up a batch in about 6 minutes (chopping the apples accounts for about half of that time).  Then I read the paper or shower while the muffins are baking.

Miser Mom Muffins

     1-1/2 cups water
     1 or 2 chopped apples
     1/3 cup dry milk
     1/3 cup soy flour
     1/3 cup sugar
     2/3 cup oats
     2 cups flour
     1 tsp baking powder
     1/3 cup oil
     (chocolate chips)

Mix ingredients together; bake in a greased muffin tin at 400 degrees for 1/2 hour.

Because this is so quick and easy to put together, I often make this as a party food -- it's very popular among my friends.  If I leave out the powdered milk and chocolate chips, it's vegan, which was helpful during the year when my step-daughter was avoiding all animal products.
