Sourdough Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Yankiwi

These muffins are moist and delicious, even when a few days old. They are quick and easy to make when you want to revitalize your sourdough starter but don’t have time to make bread. Adapted from The Sourdough Cookbook by Rita Davenport which is out of print

Loved it! Used 1 cup buttermilk instead of milk as suggested and 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips instead of the raisins. Also made it gluten free by subbing in Bob's 1 to 1 baking flour. Ended up with a super moist muffin that wasn't too sweet, so my kids could happily eat it for dessert. A keeper of a recipe, thanks!
