An easy recipe for warm, cinnamon, oatmeal, raisin studded Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins that take only minutes to make. Thank you to DairyPure Milk for sponsoring this post.
Breakfast time just got a whole lot tastier, thanks to this easy recipe for Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins. The muffins are soft with a slightly chewy bite from the oatmeal. There are wonderful, warm cinnamon flavors and bursting sweet raisins throughout. They are topped with a cinnamon sugar crumble that makes them extra special.
What I like most about this recipe (beside how tasty the muffins are!) is that it uses ingredients I always have on hand in my kitchen. The recipe is also forgiving enough to mix it up too. For example use dried cranberries instead of raisins, use granulated sugar instead of brown sugar and even melted butter instead of oil. These minor swaps may change the end result slightly, but the muffins are still delicious.
While the basics of the recipe are flexible, my fridge is always stocked with DairyPure milk to help bring it all together. DairyPure is the only milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise.
