Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

 Have I ever mentioned my weakness for oatmeal?  I love it in all forms...even pie.  When I came across an oatmeal muffin recipe, I knew I had to try it. 
 The tops of the muffins turned out like real oatmeal cookies.  The bases had a moist cake texture.  They were delicious fresh out of the oven.  I put most of them into the freezer, though, for a future breakfast.
 The recipe didn't call for raisins, but I couldn't leave the oatmeal all alone.  I am glad I went ahead and added the raisins.  If more of my family liked nuts, I'd have added some walnuts or pecans, too. 
Oatmeal Raisin Muffins (adapted from Southern Living 1982)
2 cups flour
2  cups oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
2/3 cups oil
3/4 cup raisins
Combine dry ingredients (including brown sugar) in a bowl.  Add eggs, buttermilk and oil, stirring until just combined.  Fold in raisins.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 18+ minutes or until done.

I think raisins and oatmeal should always be paired :-) Thank you for sharing such a yummy treat with me. My long day at work will be all the more sweeter now that I've visited your blog. Hugs from Austin!

Not sure why, but I have never made any kind of oatmeal muffin. I am going to have to remedy that soon - these sound like a great breakfast treat!

Isn't it amazing how when you add oatmeal to something you all of a sudden feel less guilty for eating it? Well, at least I do. These look wonderful. But, oatmeal in pie? Hum...I'm interested to see that recipe.

Eileen said...

yum! Have you ever made poor man's pecan pie? It uses oatmeal instead of pecans...but equally insanely good :)

Kirsten - these look amazing. Allspice and cinnamon were made for muffins like these! I quite like how the tops look like cookies but with a muffin underneath.

I love anything made with oatmeal. And, I'm not a raisin fan (I pick them out) but they give everything great flavor that you can't substitute.

Tiffany said...

Not the biggest raisin fan, but I'd love to make these muffins with craisins!
