Makes 12

Ingredients
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill 7 Grain®
1 cup milk (more if needed)
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar or brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon combined (allspice, nutmeg, ginger, and/or cloves)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed or 1/2 cup apple sauce or pureed prunes**
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped dried or fresh fruit (dried apricots, cranberries, blueberries, fresh raspberries, peach chunks, grated apples, coconut, etc.)
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts

Instructions
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a muffin tin with paper muffin cups. Combine Bob’s Red Mill® and 3/4 cup milk in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Let soften in microwave.  Combine next six ingredients in large bowl. Whisk remaining milk, butter, egg whites and vanilla to blend in medium bowl. Add butter/egg mixture and softened cereal to dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Mix in fruit and nuts.  Add additional milk if needed until correct consistency. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups. Bake until toothpick inserted into centers of muffins comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

**haven’t tried the prunes yet – may turn muffins an odd color, but will definitely help get things moving along.
