Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

Want an oatmeal cookie for breakfast?  My first bite into this muffin made me think of an oatmeal cookie.  It was delicious -- and I bet if you added some raisins, you'd have a healthy oatmeal raisin cookie muffin!  We made our version with apples, and they were delicious.

Light, fluffy, and delicious.  Perfect for breakfast, lunch or an after school snack. 

Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins - Adapted from someone at Curves for Women

1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C white flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 C oats (I used quick cook)
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
3/4 C chopped dried apples (or raisins)
1 egg
1 C milk
1/4 C applesauce

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease the muffin tins/cups.

Sift together flours, baking powder, salt and spices.

Stir in oats, brown sugar and fruit bits.

Meanwhile, beat the egg, milk and applesauce together in another bowl.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients until batter is moist.  It's okay if the batter is lumpy, or a little runny -- the applesauce makes it that way.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full, and bake for 20 minutes, or until muffins are lightly browned.

Makes 12 muffins, or 6 jumbo muffins, or 50 mini muffins.


  1. Yum! I love the addition of dried apples in these. I bet they are so good. I want one right now.

  2. Are those silicone baking cups? I AM JEALOUS.

  3. Oh those look sooo yummy. Thanks again for posting these.

  4. These look scrumptious. I love the addition of dried apples to the batter.

  5. I like the addition of the dried apples. I think the silicone baking cups are wonderful. Geri

  6. These muffins look so good. And so perfect for the fall season!

  7. What brand are your silicone baking cups?

  8. I also would love to know about your silicone baking cups! Where did you get them? I'm off to Google. =)

  9. These look so good, I thought you might want to share them in the Oatmeal listing here.

  10. I made these last night with a fritatta for a yummy breakfast for dinner. They turned out great! Thank you!

  11. Jim really liked these, but said the raisins all sank to the bottom, they were too heavy to float. :) Thanks!!!

  12. I made these last night and they are very good. A nice, simple muffin. I didn't use apple or raisins because I don't like them, but I put 5 cinnamon chips on top of each one. I also more than doubled the cinnamon & nutmeg, and added pumpkin pie spice, and I used 1 cup of whole wheat white instead of half white & half wheat. Oh, and rolled oats, not quick cooking.

    Thanks for the great recipe, I like this one. Would be nice with a meal, although I had one on its own for breakfast this morning and they are already a hit at the office. Thanks!

  13. Just wanted to let you know that these have because a household favorite and are in regular rotation for my menu planning. So yummy. They turn out wonderful every time. Thanks for the great recipe.
