Jam Muffins

Do you ever get jam you have sitting in the back of the cupboard going hard, or just a flavour someone has given you that you just don't like?
These muffins are great to use it up in.
And you are not having food go to waste.
I tend to use old jars of feijoa jam as I make a lot so I need to keep turning the jars over as the next seasons come in.

Jam Muffins

1 ½ cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ cup of oat bran
      (process rolled oats in the processor a little if you don't have oat bran)
½ cup sugar
½ to 1 cup of chopped walnuts

100gr butter
1 cup of milk
1 egg
1 cup of jam

Mix the first five ingredients together in a bowl.
Melt the butter and add the milk and egg and beat with a fork to mix the egg well.
Add the jam and mix well and allow a couple of minutes for the jam to ‘break up’ and/or soften.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold in until just mixed.
Pile into a well greased 12 medium muffin tin tray.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 200ÂșC until just golden.

These are really lovely served warm.
