New muffin in town

This new muffin rode in on the back of the Tasty Tuesday linkup. An applesauce and fruit muffin with no sugar (can't you here sheer glee as you read those words) originally posted here.  Since I do live on a farm, like to cook and have recently made applesauce I thought this recipe would be a perfect one to try.  Of course I did a bit of upgrading to make it more whole-foodish: substituting coconut oil for canola, using whole eggs, and a bit of pumpkin - just becasue cause I happened to have some around after all of our carving.

:: Applesauce Pumpkin Oatmeal muffins::
 Makes 6 mega muffins
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup buttermilk, kefir or plain yogurt
1 egg - find some from a local farmer
3 T ground flax seed - just throw in your coffee grinder
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 T melted coconut oil or butter
1/2 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup whole grain baking mix - I used Pamela's GF
1 T cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
3/4 cup raisins, craisins or other dried fruit
1/2 c frozen blueberries

Night before: Mix oatmeal and buttermilk.  Cover and go to bed. Great resource of why to soak grains here.
In the morning: Stir together baking mix, spices and raisins and blueberries in one bowl.  Add applesauce, flax seeds, pumpkin and egg to oatmeal/buttermilk mixture.  Combine wet and dry ingredients til just moist.
Pop into lined muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes @375.

These are so good I made them twice in one week.  The baintrain enjoyed them so much I almost didn't get a picture.

Thinking about memorizing this one...
