Molasses Raisin Muffins Recipe

  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Beat together the yogurt, egg, molasses, raisins, wheat germ, oats, and butter in a large bowl until evenly mixed. Sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt on top of the molasses mixture. Fold the flour mixture into the molasses until a batter has formed. Pour batter into muffin cups, filling to the top.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
