Oatmeal Muffins

These muffins are easy to make and they aren't overly sweet. Enjoy them any time of the day.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 well beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine the oats with the milk and let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  4. Combine the beaten egg, oil, sugar and oatmeal mixture.
  5. Add all at once to the sifted dry ingredients stirring just to moisten.
  6. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full. I used muffin cup liners.
  7. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
Yield: 12 muffins.

    1. Ida, my patio covers are a terra cotta color that might have thrown an orange hue to the muffins since I photographed them on the deck...

  6. I made these already! Love them. I added shredded zucchini and a little extra sugar.

  7. Made them, liked them. The sugar in the ingredient list did not make it down to the assembly line. :)

  8. Can you use old-fashioned oats in place of the quick cooking ones?

    1. You could try the old fashioned. The old fashioned might not cook to a softer state...

  9. Perfect for breakfast especially with the kids going back to school and everyone rushing around. Good way to get nutrition in a "grab and go" (if necessary) way or a nice treat for after school. I'll be sending this to my daughter who is a teacher and also the mother of 2 little boys. Thank you!
