I skipped the step of processing the oatmeal, and used old fashioned oats instead of the quick version. My muffins were still moist, flavorful and had a nice texture. These were great with fresh fruit and crispy center cut bacon on a lazy Sunday.

We absolutely love these muffins. They are moist and filling without being dry like many low-fat muffins are. I will make a large batch and freeze the left overs for week day breakfasts on the run. The only think I do differently is to add a couple tablespoons of flax seed to increase the protein and fiber further. I will add the lemon zest when I have it, but I don't always have lemons on hand so I don't always use it. To freeze, I let them cool completely then place in a large ziptop freezer bag. To serve, I will microwave 30-45 seconds on high.
