Best oatmeal muffins! These maple brown sugar oatmeal muffins are a healthy, hearty, delicious portable breakfast recipe.
Oatmeal muffins don't sound super exciting. But these are no ordinary oatmeal muffins. These are maple brown sugar oatmeal muffins. And they are awesome!
The muffins are sweet and are just hearty enough to be filling without being heavy. They make a great on-the-go breakfast, and I even like them for an easy dessert.
How to make oatmeal muffins
Begin by mixing the oats and milk together in a large bowl.
Add in the maple syrup, oil, brown sugar, and eggs until combined.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt until just incorporated. Don't overmix or the muffins will be tough.
Divide the batter between the prepared muffin tins. The batter will be on the thin/wet side.
You can top the muffin batter with sparkling or raw sugar, if you prefer. Bake until the muffins are golden brown and the muffins spring back when lightly touched.
How to store muffins
I store the muffins in a resealable container at room temperature.
How long will the muffins keep?
The muffins will keep for 3-4 days when stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
