Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

Publisher Photo
When we were farming and raising our three children—now all grown—oatmeal was the "main course" for breakfast many mornings. Often, I'd end up with a cup or so of it left over. So I was glad when my sister-in-law, a war bride from England, asked if I'd like to give her recipe for oatmeal muffins a try! They're so nice to have with a cup of coffee if someone stops in to visit. They freeze well, too, and keep moist...I take them to our church bake sales. These days, I also have half a dozen grandchildren to make my muffins for.

MY REVIEW

This is an absolutely delicious recipe. I must confess my leftover oatmeal had been prepared as an overnight in the crockpot and included sliced apples. Since it also contained brown sugar I omitted the brown sugar called for in this recipe, and as I had craisins I used them. Thank you so very much for sharing your idea. Otherwise I would have thrown out good leftover oatmeal!

Easy to make and very tasty. A great way to get some oatmeal in the diet. Kinda like an oatmeal/raisin cookie. I might try to experiment with a bit less sugar!

So glad I found this recipe so I don't have to gag on leftover oatmeal or throw it away! After making them several times, I've made the following changes: I use all white wheat flour, a generous half cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. They freeze great although they never last very long in there!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 5, 2011

These muffins were tasty, just way too sweet; not as much sugar as I want my children eating first thing in the morning. It was more like eating a cookie. Also, my muffins did not rise, they were flat and oily. I did substitute fresh ground wheat flour, which typically makes no difference, but maybe did this time.

Delicious! Very moist, but I find my family liked them better with my using instant oatmeal rather than old fashioned. I left out raisins just because we don't care for them.
