Streusel Topping:

1/2 stick butter

1/3 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup oats

Directions:

In a small bowl whisk together the wet ingredients: egg, milk, lemon juice and vegetable oil.

To make the streusel, combine all ingredients and mix until crumbly using either a food processor or a pastry knife.

Spoon the batter into paper lined muffin cups and top with streusel. Press streusel down gently.

    Multigrain oatmeal is great. I found it at Stop and Shop in Orleans MA. The boxes were in a closeout reduced bin. I bought one package and my family tried it. Everyone loved it so I went back to the store and bought all they had at $2.39 A box Now the store no longer carries the oatmeal. Please tell me where I can buy it on Cape Cod. Thanks, Brenda K
