Raisin granola muffins

Raisin Granola Muffins


  • 1.75 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cup granola
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp veggie oil
  • 1/4 cup raisins (my add in)
Directions: Mix dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients. Fold in dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Mix. Spoon into cupcake tray. Cook for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

OVERALL: So I rarely make things from stratch. Not because I don't like it, but it's always time consuming for me and I don't have enough bowls to mix things separately and I generally make a mess. Plus, I feel like I have less ability to use my creative energy to modify the recipe! But I was staring at my box of granola, which had this lovely recipe on the side. It looked simple enough, and I HAD all the ingredients to make (minus the vanilla). So I decided to make them.

They tasted very good when they came out of the oven. There was only a hint of sweetness, no where near what I'm use to when buying muffins from Starbucks, but they were still good.

I have no idea what happened overnight. I put them in the fridge, covered and all, and they turned to rock hard muffins. They were almost painful to eat. I ended up throwing about half away after I couldn't eat anymore. So I'm not sure if I would make again, maybe some weird planet alignment caused the muffins to turn on me.

I've always wanted to chuck a rock hard muffin at someone's head.

Raisins? Ew.

Aw sad! They turned into little rocks, how terrible! I wonder if it was storing in the frig instead of room temp? Its such a tragedy when you have to throw away all that timeeeee, and ingredientssss, I hate that!!
