Strawberry Oaties

  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup regular rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat to 375.  Mix dry. Combine wet.  Mix together. I forgot the milk and they still turned out pretty yummy! So i cut it out of the recipe above. I cooked mine for 15 minutes though the original recipe said 8…

Peachy Keen Muffins

 Peachy Keen Muffins

  • 3 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups white brown sugar
  • 2 cups peeled, pitted, and chopped peaches

Oven at 400.  Mix wet. Mix dry. Fold peaches into dry. Fold wet into dry.  Spoon into greased muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes. Forgot about mine while I was playing with Baby H so they had an extra 2 minutes and turned out good but a little on the crispy side 🙂

Enjoy!
