Oatmeal "cookie" Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lynne the Pirate Qu

These muffins from The Inn at Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia are said to taste like old-fashioned oatmeal cookies. I haven't made them yet, but given how much I love oatmeal, these are high on my to-make list! :)

I wasn't so sure about the amount of spices. I tasted the batter and thought it was too plain, but after I baked them, the taste was totally oatmeal cookie-like. Very nice flavor. I had a problem with them not rising. Not sure if it was the applesauce that makes the batter kinda runny, or if it needs more baking powder. I will experiment next time to see if more bp helps. Thanks for posting - was a nice Thanksgiving breakfast treat.
