Apple Walnut Magic Muffins

The base recipe for these muffins comes from the Malt-o-Meal quick cooking how wheat cereal box. My mom would always make these muffins, but would add an apple and walnuts to make them extra moist and delicious. It is a great way to use up apples that aren't very good for whatever reason. I usually double this recipe and the muffins also freeze beautifully.

1 1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. Original Malt-o-Meal hot wheat cereal, dry
1/2 c. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

Extra add ins:
1 grated apple (doesn't matter how gross plain)
1/2 c. (or so) chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In large mixing bowl combine all ingredients and stir together until all ingredients are moistened. (I usually combine all dry ingredients and then add the wet stuff.) Then I stir in my grated apple and chopped walnuts. Pour batter into muffin pan, roughly 3/4 full per muffin and bake 18-20 minutes. ENJOY!

Yield: 12 muffins
