Dr Oz did a segment called Healthy Muffin Lovin’ because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Marjorie Johnson, a Blue Ribbon Award Winning Baker and author of The Road to Blue Ribbon Baking With Marjorie, joined Doctor Oz to teach everyone how to make a healthy Apricot Pecan Oatmeal Muffin Recipe.
Dr Oz: Oatmeal Muffin Recipe
Marjorie Johsnon might just be my new hero! To have so much enthusiasm and energy and to be so incredibly lively and colorful at her age is truly inspirational! If these Apricot Pecan Oatmeal Muffins give me even 50% of the energy that she clearly has, I will be thrilled. Marjorie gave Dr Oz a bunch of great baking tips. For example, when you mix together the buttermilk and the oats, you have to let it soak for about 20 minutes so that the oats absorb all of the buttermilk. Marjorie also used canola oil, which is a healthy oil, over other oil or butter options. Another crucial tip that everyone’s grandma is likely to swear by is to not over stir the ingredients when you mix the wet and dry ingredients together. You just want to mix it enough to moisten the dry ingredients. Lumpy batter makes the yummiest muffins! Dr Oz said that each Apricot Pecan Oatmeal Muffin is only 196 calories and 10 grams of fat. To mix things up, you can try different nuts – like walnuts instead of pecans. Dr Oz gave Marjorie Johnson the first ever Dr Oz Blue Ribbon, which is clearly well deserved!
