I think Julie put it best on the P&Q when she said, “After months of sugar overload, this might be just what I need.” Seriously. The holidays are over. But somehow, desserts just keep popping up.
These muffins, with cornmeal, oatmeal and whole wheat flour aren’t exactly healthy. They still have plenty of sugar and butter. The recipe calls for dried fruit, but you know what I think about that. I did have the urge to put chocolate chips in them, but I’m proud to say I resisted (ok, I am kinda regretting it). They tasted like cornbread to us, very dense and moist.
They are quick to put together, if not all that exciting. Happy Tummy will have the recipe. And check out other TWD’ers here.

I had the overwhelming urge to add chocolate chips too..I resisted this time and used apricots but next time it might be a chip muffin.
Ah yes, the chocolate chips might have made them tastier. I thought about it too 🙂 Thanks for baking along with me this week!
You're right… these do remind me of cornbread! They look great!
How weird – my weren't cornbread-like at all! But I actually didn't measure the whole grains precisely. My 1/3-cup measuring cup was dirty, so I just eyeballed what I thought was a third cup each of oats, cornmeal, and whole wheat flour into a 1-cup measuring cup. Maybe I lucked out with a lower cornmeal ratio!
I too resisted chocolate chips. But I'll make them again.
They were a nice change, but chocolate is always welcome here. 😉
Well I didn't resist the chocolate chips..ha ha..I knew my kids weould not eat them if I baked them with fruit! SO glad I did use the chocolate cus in my opinion they needed more sugar! You can tell I have a dang sweet tooth..haha:))
I had to fight the urge to add chocolate chips too
I can't believe I didn't even think about using chocolate chips in these. Good job resisting but next time you should probably use them. 🙂
