I had a couple of boxes of Jiffy Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix in my pantry (okay the pantry is a converted coat closet but it works) and we had them before so I know they're good. However I woke up this morning, apparently hungry, and thinking about apple
muffins that we used to get at Costco. They had an oatmeal crumb bottom that made them really good. So stayed in bed for a little bit thinking about how to use the Jiffy Mix to make something more like the Costco muffins.
With Muffins still on my mind and no hope of going to back to sleep I got up and headed for the kitchen. I made a set of Special Apple Cinnamon Muffins and they were awesome! Now it is not uncommon to have glitches the first time out trying to create a
new recipe and this recipe had one. When the muffins are done they have caramel like bottom and even though I sprayed the muffin pan very liberally with cooking spray they still stuck. Next time I'll use muffin cups. I know I have some around here somewhere
(probably in the pantry) but if anyone has another idea PLEASE post a comment.
In spite of the sticking issue I will definitely make these again. Here's what I did:
Special Apple Cinnamon Muffins
1 box Jiffy Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Instant Oatmeal
1/4 cup Brown sugar
2 TBSP Butter or Margarine (soft)
6 Muffin Cups
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl combine muffin mix, egg, and milk according to package directions.
In a second small bowl mix together oatmeal and brown sugar, then with a fork mask butter into the mixture until it is completely combined.
Place muffin cups into muffin pan, then add 1 TBSP of muffin mix to each cup, next top each cup with 2 tsp of oatmeal mixture, finally divide remaining muffin mix evenly into each cup (about 2 TBSP each)
Cook according to Jiffy box directions.
***This makes 6 standard size muffins. Adjustment will be needed for extra large or mini muffins.
