3 packets artificial sweetener (such as Splenda or Equal)1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease and flour a muffin pan or line with muffin cups. Mix all dry ingredients together until evenly blended. In a large bowl, beat egg; add milk and cooked rice. Stir in melted shortening, and immediately add flour mixture. Stir until all is just dampened, and stir three or four more strokes, but avoid making the batter smooth. Add fruit and nuts if desired. Spoon into prepared muffin pan, filling about 2/3 full. Bake 20 minutes or until done. Makes 10-12 muffins. Or you can use smaller muffin tins and make 24.

Note: you can vary the flavor with spices, nuts, fruit, cheese, etc. Be careful not to add anything with too much liquid.
