Three-grain raspberry muffins

Dietitian's tip: Cornmeal gives these muffins a crunchy texture that pairs well with any sweet berry, from raspberries to blueberries. If one dozen muffins is too many, freeze any extras in a lock-top plastic bag.

Serves: MAKES 12 MUFFINS

Ingredients

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup 1 percent low-fat milk or plain soy milk (soya milk)
3/4 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
1/2 cup cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
1/4 cup wheat bran
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dark honey
3 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1 egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup raspberries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper or foil liners.

In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the oats and milk. Microwave on high until the oats are creamy and tender, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, bran, baking powder and salt. Whisk to blend. Add the honey, canola oil, lime zest, oats mixture and egg. Beat just until moistened but still slightly lumpy. Gently fold in the raspberries.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack and let cool completely.
