I wanted to find muffins that use oats rather than flour. I have no issues with flour, but it seems like this would be higher in fiber. Since I am on the healthy heart diet, I need extra fiber.
Looking around I found you can replace oatmeal flour with regular flour easily. but I did need to make adjustments with the baking powder.
To make oatmeal flour all you have to do is run oatmeal through a food possessor. 1 cup of oats makes 3/4 cup of flour.
Lately I am also looking for ways to use the liquid whey I get from making yogurt. Liquid whey is a natural byproduct of yogurt. Making yogurt is really easy, and you can learn how. Homemade Yogurt
So here is my recipe:
- 1 c oats
- 1 c liquid whey
- 1 beaten egg
- 1/2 c brown sugar packed
- 1/2 soft butter
- 1 c oatmeal four
- 1 tea cinnamon
- 1/4 tea clove
- 2 tea baking powder
Soak the whole oats in the liquid whey for an hour.
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl mix egg, sugar butter, and the oat mix.
In a smaller bowl mix oat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon.
Mix the dry ingredients in the wet ones.
Bake about 20 mins.
