Grandpa's Oatmeal Muffins

Why call them Grandpa's Muffins? Because there's chopped prunes hidden inside! Hee hee hee! The kids thought they were raisins and I confessed my naughty deed but these are so soft and fluffy, they didn't I topped them with a light sprinkling of brown sugar before baking and they LOVE when I do that to their muffins.
My youngest said they were good, but needed more prunes. 
I'm glad he thinks prunes are for little boys too ;-)

Heat oven to 400.
Mix together in bowl:
1 cup plain flour
3 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup (cane) sugar
1 cup quick oats
Then add;
2/3 cup chopped prunes 
and toss in the flour.
Beat in;
1 egg
1 cup milk
3 T melted butter
Fill greased muffin tin.
Sprinkle lightly with brown sugar.
Bake for approx. 15 minutes.
Makes 1 dozen muffins.
