Oatmeal Cinnamon muffins are so easy to make and wonderful with additions like chocolate chips or grated apples.

I have a few recipes that over the years have become staples. This oatmeal muffin recipe that is very simple. What I really love about it is that it’s so easy to change up. Sometimes I add chocolate chips. Other times I will add in a grated apple or a mashed banana to give them a bit more moisture. If you like raisins or other dried fruits or nuts, I’m sure they would be great in these muffins. Have fun with this recipe and enjoy!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup oats

1 cup milk

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup vegetable oil (you can use melted butter if you like or olive oil)

1 cup sugar

2 cups unbleached white flour

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Cinnamon Sugar

3 tbsp sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Put oats, milk, lemon juice and vanilla in a bowl. Let sit for about 1o mins. While waiting mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl.

Add in eggs, oil and sugar to the oat mixture and mix well.

Finally fill pre-lined or greased muffin tin, approximately 2/3 full. This makes 12-18 muffins depending on how much you fill them. If you like, you can put a little bit of cinnamon sugar on top.

Place in a 350ºF preheated over for 20-25 minutes, or until the centre springs back when pressed. They are really yummy straight out of the oven, but they also freeze well so you can use them in packed lunches.

    1. I haven’t tried cranberries, but I’m sure that would be nice, especially the dried ones that tend to be a bit sweeter. I have done these with blueberries and a crumble topping which was very nice.

  1. Thank you Angele for another delicious looking recipe that I have to try out. I may add raisins and pecans. Either way…oatmeal is one of my favorite ingredients in a muffin or cookie recipe.
