Great Grain Muffins-Tuesdays with Dorie

Not too earthy- these great grain muffins have a fine balance of texture from adding whole wheat flour, yellow cornmeal and oatmeal to the basic all-purpose flour muffin. Maple syrup lends a heady sweet flavor along with dried sweet cherries and chopped walnuts which combine to make these the perfect muffin to enjoy for breakfast or with coffee or hot tea for an afternoon break. Muffins are one of the simplest bake goods to prepare and in minutes you have fresh from the oven. Serve these with a chunk of cheese or butter and jam.

    I thought these were delicious! I added cranberries and pistachios, but cherries and walnuts sound delicious, too! The possibilities are endless.
