This recipe will make a 6 X 10 inch muffin cake.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Or, for a quickie method, this cinnamon apple raisin muffin cake can be baked in a microwave oven in only 8 minutes at 1000 watts.

Begin the recipe by placing the whole wheat or spelt flour in a mixing bowl.  Place the oatmeal in the container of a blender and run it at high speed until the oatmeal is finely chopped, and add to the mixing bowl.  Add the baking soda and cinnamon, and mix well.  Add the raisins and mix well.  (If you "fresh-grind" your grain, as we do, the grains and rolled oats can be ground at the same time in the Vita-Mix dry container.)

Add two of the washed and cored apples, and the dates to the regular blender container, cover, and blend at high speed until the mixture is smooth.

Wash, core and cut the third apple in slices.

Add the apple-date mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.  If the ingredients are too stiff, add a little apple juice, but don't let the muffin dough become runny.  It should be slightly on the stiff side.

Lightly oil the baking dish or cake pan.

Immediately, pour/spoon the muffin dough into the baking dish or pan to a depth of about 1/2 inch, and decorate the surface with the apple slices and a few sprinkles of additional cinnamon.  Place the muffin cake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes.  When the muffin cake is done, the cake will be springy to the touch without leaving a fingerprint depression on the surface. 

If baking in the microwave oven, cook on high until the cake is springy to the touch.  As an example, the muffin cake in the 6 X 10 inch glass baking dish, shown in the photo, took only 8 minutes to bake at 1000 watts.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
