Sandra's Birdy MuffinsBy: Sandra J. Bortnick, D.V.M. - email@example.com - July 23, 1997
These birdy muffins have been eaten greedily by all birdys of people I suggested them to. Supplement them with your imagination (I especially like to add sesame).
4 cups boiled and mashed pumpkin or canned pumpkin
2 cups cream of wheat (uncooked)
2 cups grits (uncooked)
1 cups oatmeal (uncooked)
1/2 cups applesauce
1 egg (shell too)
2 tbs. baking powder
2 tbs. cinnamon
1/2 cups raisins
1/2 cups sugar
1 tbs. vegetable oil
Adjust consistency with applesauce, water, or grits. Spoon into cupcake paper lined muffin tins and bake 20-35 minutes at 400 degrees. I also use Jiffy muffin mix in place of c.o.w. and grits. Sesame seeds are high in calcium. I don't use much sesame seed and if I use it I omit oil from that batch.
