Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…Oatmeal Muffins

by Lisa on January 3, 2011

About seven years ago, my husband planned a weekend getaway to a wonderful bed and breakfast for us.   The Old Mulberry Inn Bed and Breakfast is still open for business in historic Jefferson, Texas.  One highlight was the wonderful food, and before leaving I purchased their cookbook.  It is a collection of their fifty favorite B&B recipes.  Today I thought I would share their Oatmeal Muffins. (If you ever want to visit historic Jefferson, Texas, make sure you stay at the Old Mulberry Inn.  It was wonderful!)

Oatmeal Muffins

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 c. oats, quick or old-fashioned, uncooked
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 3 T. vegetable oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 c. nonfat milk

Sift into bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.  Stir in the oats.  Add vegetable oil, beaten egg, and nonfat milk.  Stir only until dry ingredients are just moistened.  Fill greased, medium-sized muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes.  Serve hot.  Makes a dozen.

Variation:  Add 1/2 c. raisins, chopped dates or nutmeats with the oats.

(When making these muffins, today, I added Craisins instead of raisins, and left out the nuts due to my 3 year old prefering no nuts.)

OK I don’t have an image, so the linking tool is freaking out, but I’ve linked my site to a FABULOUS chicken wing dish my mother in law makes for new Year’s.

Happy New Year! Thanks for hosting again this week, I was glad to have a place to show off my apple ‘n’ pear cobbler. I also wanted to invite you to check out a new linky party I am hosting on my blog this year; “Ott, A’s Iron Chef Challenge.” Each month will have a themed ingredient where bloggers can link up any recipe that uses that ingredient. I will then have a guest judge look over the linked up posts and give away some fabulous prizes to the winner. January’s theme is Duck. Hope you can join in the fun!!! http://ow.ly/3xHEX
