Perfect Leftover Oatmeal Muffins

Perfect Leftover Oatmeal Muffins created by MichelleDamico

You might even want to make some oatmeal if you don't have any leftover. I've made this as small bundt cake as well, when my muffin tin went missing, with tasty results. If your oatmeal is on the thin side, use a tiny bit more flour. The nuts, dried fruit/chocolate, and spices are obviously flexible. Cinnamon would be a good addition. Maybe cardamom or ginger?

directions

  • Mix ingredients, up to and including cranberries, together in a large bowl. Stir these ingredients together very well.
  • Mix the last three ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder) in a measuring cup, then incorporate them into the wet ingredients swifty and without stirring past the point that all is combined (as you would do for any muffins).
  • Grease muffin tins, cups, or bundt pan (I use Pam baking spray or a very nonstick muffin tin). Fill about 2/3 full, maybe slightly more.
  • Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

    For a tweak, I added chia seeds to the wet ingredients and let them sit for about 10 minutes. I also threw in 2 tsp. of reduced walnut balsamic vinegar to kick up the reaction with the baking soda and add some extra flavour. Yum!!

    I used leftover cream of wheat, doubled this recipe and added chocolate chips, pecans and dried cranberries. I also ground some frosted shredded wheat squares, pecans and cinnamon and topped the batter in the muffin pans with this crunchy combination. The cream of wheat substitution made the muffins very creamy and moister than typical. The ground shredded wheat added extra crunch. A great recipe.

    Excellent result. I decreased the amount of sugar, and the quantity of walnuts a bit. The leftover oatmeal I had on hand had cooked apples in it, so I omitted the applesauce. Delicious! I'll be making these whenever I have leftover oatmeal in the future.
