Morning Walk and Muffins!

Hi..thought you'd like to join us on our morning walk......we walk down to the local field with the granddog every morning..but watch your step in some areas, lots of rocks..there is a path but it narrows sometimes....
Here are a few things we saw this morning...
we watched bunnies playing among the rocks.....
lots of bunnies.....and of course with the bunnies, comes the predators...this little kestral wasn't looking for bunnies though..they are as big as he is!.




after the walk, we usually come home to breakfast..this morning, I made Oatmeal Sunflower Raisin muffins...


Yummy! and a healthy breakfast..full of good stuff, so tasty...
here is the recipe...

Oatmeal Raisin Sunflower Seed Muffins
1 c. flour
1 c. uncooked old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 c. packed brown sugar (I used Splenda)
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 T. melted butter or margarine, cooled
2 T. vegetable oil
1.t. vanilla
3/4 c. raisins
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
Preheat oven to 400. Grease muffin pan...this makes 9 regular muffins or 6 jumbos..In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients, flour, oatmeal, sugaar, baking powder, salt...in another bowl, mix the liquid together well, milk,  oil, butter and vanilla. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet..stir just to combine..then stir in the raisins and seeds. Spoon into the prepared pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes..cool on a wire rack..these muffins freeze well......
