It's National Raisin Week so enjoy it with some yummy Oatmeal Raisin Apple Muffins #RaisinHOP

 

It’s National Raisin Week and a group of us bloggers decided to get together and create some super yummy, out of this world raisin recipes for all of you. I debated for weeks on just what my recipe would be. I didn’t want to do the standard cookie and I have been trying to eat healthier (meaning not as much fat) as usual and decided to go with an Oatmeal Raisin Apple Muffins recipe. 

I love muffins for breakfast! They are so easy to grab and go when you are running around on a busy morning. I also like that for muffins you can mix up the dry ingredients in advance and store them in a baggie or a sealed container and add the wet ingredients when you are ready to bake. This makes having a warm, fresh muffin on a weekday morning a snap. It's National Raisin Week so enjoy it with some yummy Oatmeal Raisin Apple Muffins #RaisinHOP

These muffins are made even better because they are super moist and flavorful. They have so much apples and raisins you are getting something good for you in each and every bite. The topping gives them a nice little bit of sweet and crunchy.

Gluten-Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies

For the last few months I have been diligently researching gluten-free baking. I didn’t need to do it. Nobody in my house has a reason to go gluten-free but I myself have a lot of health issues and I figured it couldn’t hurt to swap out some gluten for some gluten-free. It also doesn’t hurt that I love adding almond meal to baked goods already to give them a protein bump. I have read up so much on what flours are good for what, how people like the tastes and textures and which ones come closest to something like all-purpose flour. Then a few weeks back I found out that one of my great-nieces (No I’m not THAT old but my husband is older than me so he is that old and I’m the aunt about the same age as my nieces and nephews.) has been put on a gluten-free diet for health reasons. I figured this weekend at the family 4th of July festivities was the perfect time to break out with my first gluten-free recipe for the blog, Gluten-Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies. I was really pleased with the texture and taste of these and the cookies were well liked by everyone.

During my research on gluten-free baking I learned that you could get gluten-free oatmeal now and process it in the food processor to use as a flour. I decided to use that and a bit of almond meal for this recipe because oats in cookies are very common so it was not to much of a drastic textural change. So, if you are a fan of oatmeal cookies then this will definitely be a recipe you will like but a little kicked up with the white chocolate chips and the sweet and tart dried cherries.
