Oatmeal Cinnamon-Sugar Muffins

"These muffins have an excellent taste and texture. They are wonderfully moist and soft inside. They are perfect for breakfast: a couple of them keeps me going the whole morning. They can be frozen and come out of the freezer just as fresh as from the oven. I found this recipe in Internet several months ago and I made little changes on it until I got the perfect muffins for me. I hope you will enjoy them as well! In the preparation time I don't include the time while the oats and the sour milk are standing in the bowl (1 hour)."

  1. These Oatmeal Muffins are good, the texture of mine were really light and easily crumbled. I made 12 muffins from the recipe, topping 6 with cinnamon, sugar, and oatmeal; and the other 6 with a strudel topping. I added raisins soaking them with the oatmeal and milk to plump them up a bit. All in all a good recipe.
  2. In my oven, it was 15 minutes at 375 degrees F. The first batch I made burned on the bottom. I like the ease of this recipe, and my 4 year old can help make them.
  3. I used rice milk and gluten free all purpose baking flour. I added a dash of nutmeg, some vanilla and cinnamon. I made 1/2 with chocolate chips, and they were really good. Will make again!
  4. I haven't had ONE bite yet (OK, i tasted the yummy batter), but both my kids GOBBLED these down so they get FIVE stars from me! Love the ease of the recipe and the simplicity of the ingredient list...refreshing change to NOT have blueberries or other fruit/things dotted the muffins, we like these just plain with cinnamon sugar dusted on top. Will be perfect for my child's lunchbox. Thanks so much...can't wait for breakfast!
  5. These are excellent! I added a big pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a small pinch of cloves and allspice. They were warm and spicy and sweet, just the way muffins should be. Perfect for afternoon tea. They took 18 minutes to bake, and since I used quick oats rather than rolled oats, I skipped the soaking step...much faster prep time. Thank you!!


36 y.o., I live in Stockholm, Sweden, with my partner, and our wonderful little son, Benny, born in December 2003. I am known for being a very bad cook, but I learn every day how not to make expensive mistakes :). I live in a wonderful forest area 10 minutes away from Stockholm center, and 5 minutes away from the sea, close to the Stockholms archipelago of islands. I walk around a lot, I visit some of the islands in the summer, and in the winter I study and take walks in the snow. The picture I added shows a picnic in the Stockholm archipelago with my former working collegues and dear friends, and gives an idea about how the archipelago looked like last summer. I´m the lady in flowered skirt and red shawl. I was pregnant with Benny and we had a wonderful time.
