Why can't oatmeal muffins taste more like oatmeal cookies? These do! The trick is to first caramelize the oatmeal. Enjoy the nice, deep oatmeal flavor.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook 2/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice until golden brown. Stir in 2/3 cup water and remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar. Cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup uncooked oats, baking powder and wheat germ. Whisk together egg and evaporated milk. Make a well in the center of flour mixture, and pour in egg mixture and cooked oatmeal. Mix just until combined. Dredge raisins in 1 tablespoon flour, then fold into batter. Spoon into muffin cups.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

This was a very good recipe. It reminded me somewhat of the allbran muffin recipe. Not too sweet. These are muffins with substance, oats and raisins, yum! I did double the cinnamon and allspice because I love those spices. I only cooked mine for twenty minutes and they came out perfect. I will make these again! Read More

I really liked the idea of caramelizing the oats before adding them to the mix but this recipe just didn't do it for me. They came out really dry and without as much flavor as I expected even though I doubled the spices. They were edible warm and covered with apple butter but it's going to take us a while to get rid of them all. Read More

Since my husband is a diabetic I used Splenda Brown Sugar replacing the sugar according to Splenda directions. I used 2 TBS of wheat germ and skim milk to cut down on the fat a little. This is a knock-your-socks-off recipe! Read More

Good flavor slightly chewy loaded with raisins. I doubled the amount of wheat germ and used skim milk in place of evaporated. Family loved them! Will definitely make again. Read More

I own a bed and breakfast and these muffins passed the test of my picky guests. As a note, bake the muffins the night before, after cooling, wrap in plastic, or just cover with a plastic bag. The next morning they will be very moist almost like a cake. At that time, warm up and serve with butter. Yum, muffins they keep me in business. Read More

I love the carmelized idea. These muffins were tastey with a nicely puffed and toasted top. I also substituted soy milk. They were however a tad on the dry side and I wanted them a little sweeter. Batch #2: I added 1/2 cup of sour cream and they came out a bit more moist. I also added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar. This recipe makes a great base for adding variety like bananna. Read More

I really liked this! I put in one apple cored and sliced. I just made sure I coated the apple with flour. I also ended up using 3 packages of instant oatmeal (I realized too late it was all I had) It turned out dense and very sweet. Oh I also used 1 cup of vanilla soy milk instead of evaporated. Perfect for the breakfast on the go! Read More

These are very good dense muffins sure to fill you up! I wasn't about to open a can of evaporated milk to just use the one cup so I just grabbed the regular milk out of the fridge.Despite the fact there's a cup of sugar in them they really aren't very sweet - try them with some peanut butter....YUMMM I will be making this again!
