Last week, the kids were home due to snow and extreme cold temperature. Of course they needed something to snack on, so I whipped up a batch of these delicious and easy muffins.
My daughter told me that they were her favorite muffins I’ve ever made. Wow! She’s been quite picky lately and I was happy to hear that. These muffins remind me of a bowl of hot oatmeal. I preferred to eat them warm with a smear of butter. Yum!!
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup milk
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup oil
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Sparkling or raw sugar, optional
Line a muffin tin with paper liners, set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the oats and milk. Add the maple syrup, oil, brown sugar and eggs. Mix well. Add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
Divide the batter evenly between 12 muffins. Sprinkle with sugar if using. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan, before removing to a wire rack to completely cool.
