oatmeal-pineapple muffins

This morning my 7 year old bug got up and wanted to make muffins for breakfast. This mommy couldn't pass up the opportunity of cooking breakfast with my sweet girl! Here is a photo and the recipe to these delicious muffins. Adapted from a baking cookbook we found at the dollar store.


1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1 cup sugar or in my case, sucanat
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup of oats, finely chopped
8 ounces crushed pineapple, with juice
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar together. Add the egg, vanilla and pineapple with juice. Mix well. Add flour, baking soda, salt and chopped oats. Mix thoroughly and spoon batter into muffin tins lined with paper liners. Top with a little of crushed pineapple if you have any left from using a large can like we did. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and toothpick inserted into muffin comes out clean.

Hope you enjoy these as much as we did this morning!

God Bless!

so blessed......

As I was walking down our driveway, picking dewberries with my three baby bugs, I just can not imagine life getting any better than this! I am so blessed!

Not only do I have beautiful helpers, we also have a gallon of freshly picked dewberries to make some yummy dewberry ice cream and dewberry lemonade!

God is Good!
