Oatmeal Apple Raisin Muffins

I like to make these muffins on weekend mornings, when I let Andre sleep in.  He is always so happy when he gets up and there are fresh muffins coming out of the oven for him. 

Preheat oven to 400.

2 Eggs

1 1/2 cup milk
2 cups raisins (I will boil and drain my raisins in water before putting them in the recipe in order to plump them up and make them super juicy)
2 cups chopped apple (about 2 apples) I prefer Granny Smith, but any variety will work
1 cup vegetable or canola oil

In separate bowl combine:
2 cups flour
2 cups quick oats
2/3 cup sugar
6 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground nutmeg
4 tsp. cinnamon

Stir dry ingredients into wet until just combined.  Fill greased muffin tins or papers as right to top and kind of overflowing the top of the muffin tin.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
