Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

It is not often that Twitter fails me, but it happened on Sunday. No one had an Oatmeal Raisin muffin recipe for me. Boo hoo! No worries… just another opportunity to get to work creating. And create I did.

This muffin is not too sweet and not too “grainy”. The yogurt helps do great things to the oats and the spices pair well with the raisins. Nothing too funky, flavor-wise, here, so this should be a crowd pleaser…

Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
6 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter), melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins

Combine oats and plain yogurt in a bowl and allow to sit for a half hour or so. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in brown sugar, coconut oil (or butter), and eggs. Fold in yogurt/oat mixture. Fold in raisins. Batter should be quite thick, but if it’s too difficult to work with, feel free to stir in up to two tablespoons of milk. Spoon into greased muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes.

Yield: 12 standard muffins or 9 “big” muffins. (I like to fill my tins very full and let them rise high. But that might just be me. ;))
