Oatmeal raisin muffins

There is something about baked goods with raisins in them that make my mouth water. Especially if there is a healthy dose of cinnamon as well. When it comes to breakfast, muffins reign supreme in our house. They are a delicious option to grab in the morning, or for a snack during school or work. There are plenty of different muffins out there to make. One of our favorites is oatmeal raisin muffins. They are the perfect combination of moist texture, with a strong cinnamon raisin taste.

If you are looking for an easy delicious recipe for the family to try, then this is for you. It is also a great way to teach your children how to cook, ensuring that they learn vital life skills. This recipe makes 12 muffins.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, mix together oats and buttermilk. Allow to sit for a few minutes.

Combine egg, brown sugar and oil in another mixing bowl. Add this to the oat mixture and stir until well combined.


In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.

Pour in the liquid mixture and stir. The batter will become fairly thick at this point, however, this is how the batter should be. Make sure everything is well combined and no lumps of dry flour remain.

Fold in raisins.

Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. These muffins will rise a fair bit, so you don’t want to fill them to the top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack.

    Looks like a nice recipe to try and maybe it could be adapted to have something other than the raisins too as there are some in our family that don’t like them.

      Yes, it can be adapted to other things. We have made them with dried cranberries and other dried fruit and they turn out well.
