These breakfast muffins are perfect with your morning cuppa. The oatmeal makes them tender, but with a unique, nubby texture. A delicious way to eat your grains.

Fantastic oatmeal muffin recipe. I doubled the recipe and used a whole lemon (juice zest) and the lemon taste is perfect. As I didn't have poppyseeds on hand, I omitted those and added frozen blueberries. I would definately make these again as they're perfect for a healthy breakfast.

These are a good hearty breakfast muffin, which is what I was looking for. I used soy milk and soy butter because of DS allergies, and it worked. I added 1 1/2 T of lemon juice and 1 T of lemon extract, but I think next time I will go to 2 T of juice and 1 1/2 T of extract because I want the lemony goodness. =) I might put the oats into the processor briefly and sub with applesauce next time. And yes, There will be a next time. Thank you for sharing.

These were really good with a few tweaks. Used half white whole wheat and half white flour. Subbed applesauce for the oil, doubled the lemon juice & zest, and skipped the topping. This got 2 thumbs up from the kids and I really enjoyed them too. I'll be freezing them for the morning rush hour in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing!
