Breakfast Granola Muffins


  • 1 cup granola
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup golden raisin
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, or plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F with a rack in the middle. Oil 12 muffin cups. Combine granola and milk in a bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cover the raisin with hot water and soak for 15 minutes. Drain and soak with paper towels.
  • Sift together whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In medium bowl, beat together the eggs, honey, buttermilk or yogurt, canola oil and vanilla. Quickly whisk in the flour, then fold in the granola and raisins. Combine well.
