Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins Recipe
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.
