| ||4 C||Canned pumpkin or freshly cooked|
| ||2 C||Uncooked grits|
| ||1 C||Rolled oats|
| ||1/2 C||Apple sauce|
| ||1 ||Egg|
| ||2 T||Baking Powder|
| ||2 T||Cinnamon|
| ||1/2 C||Raisins|
| ||1/2 C||Sugar|
| ||1 T||Vegetable Oil|
|The muffins are made entirely from people-grade foods, and bake up some sweet and soft that humans can enjoy them just as much as their pets.
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Cream of Wheat, grits, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix well, until completely blended.
2. Add the whole egg (shell and all) to a blender, along with the raisins. Blend everything for several seconds on the highest speed, until the eggshell disappears completely, and the raisins have been well-pureed.
3. Add the pumpkin, applesauce, vegetable oil, and the egg/raisin puree to the dry ingredients. Then use an electric mixer to thoroughly beat and mix everything together until you have a consistent and well-mixed batter.
4. Check the consistency of the batter. It should be thin enough to pour easily, but not too watery. Adjust the consistency with water or applesauce, or additional grits.
5. Once the batter is the proper consistency, prepare muffin tins or miniature muffin tins by greasing them with margarine, oil, or non-stick cooking spray. Alternately, you can use paper muffin liners.
6. Begin to pour the batter into each of the muffin tins, filling each one about 3/4 of the way full. Once all the batter has been used up, place the muffin tins into the preheated oven. Bake for about 20-35 minutes, checking often, until the muffins are nicely golden. A toothpick inserted into one of the centers should come out clean.
7. Remove the muffins once they are done cooking. Allow them to cool completely before serving to your pet. If you used paper muffin liners, remove them before giving them to your pet. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator or freeze them.
