"Why can't oatmeal muffins taste more like oatmeal cookies? These do! The trick is to first caramelize the oatmeal. Enjoy the nice, deep oatmeal flavor." — Chantal Pare

1 1/3 cups
This was a very good recipe. It reminded me somewhat of the allbran muffin recipe. Not too sweet. These are muffins with substance, oats and raisins, yum! I did double the cinnamon and allspice because I love those spices. I only cooked mine for twenty minutes and they came out perfect. I will make these again!
I really liked the idea of caramelizing the oats before adding them to the mix, but this recipe just didn't do it for me. They came out really dry and without as much flavor as I expected, even though I doubled the spices. They were edible warm and covered with apple butter, but it's going to take us a while to get rid of them all.
Since my husband is a diabetic, I used Splenda Brown Sugar replacing the sugar according to Splenda directions. I used 2 TBS of wheat germ and skim milk to cut down on the fat a little. This is a knock-your-socks-off recipe!
with two 2/3 cup more flour, they become fluffy and more muffiney. the basic recipe is good, but comes out looking like flan, very jelly like.
Good flavor, slightly chewy, loaded with raisins. I doubled the amount of wheat germ and used skim milk in place of evaporated. Family loved them! Will definitely make again.
I own a bed and breakfast and these muffins passed the test of my picky guests. As a note, bake the muffins the night before, after cooling, wrap in plastic, or just cover with a plastic bag. The next morning they will be very moist almost like a cake. At that time, warm up and serve with butter. Yum, muffins they keep me in business.
I love the carmelized idea. These muffins were tastey with a nicely puffed and toasted top. I also substituted soy milk. They were however a tad on the dry side and I wanted them a little sweeter.
Batch #2: I added 1/2 cup of sour cream and they came out a bit more moist. I also added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar. This recipe makes a great base for adding variety like bananna.
I really liked this! I put in one apple, cored and sliced. I just made sure I coated the apple with flour. I also ended up using 3 packages of instant oatmeal (I realized too late it was all I had) It turned out dense and very sweet. Oh, I also used 1 cup of vanilla soy milk instead of evaporated. Perfect for the breakfast on the go!
