Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Healthy Eating edition!
Before we begin, I'd like to remind all my readers that today is the last day to enter my Pay It Forward book exchange giveaway! I'll be drawing a name tomorrow morning for one fortunate winner of the book Lucky by Alice Sebold. Not only that, so far five other bloggers are joining in and hosting book giveaways of their own! Check it out!
Okay, now onward with our recipe exchange.
Please share your light and healthy recipes to help me get my cholesterol down to normal levels! :)
The recipe I'm sharing I found on Prevention.allrecipes.com!
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup golden raisins
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
In a large bowl, stir together the buttermilk, oil, brown sugar, and egg. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Do not over mix. Stir in the apples, walnuts, and raisins (if using).
Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling them about two-thirds full. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Remove to the rack to cool completely.
