Apple oatmeal muffins

This recipe makes 24-30 muffins.


  • 4 cups oats
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 cup buttermilk
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded or finely chopped apples
  • 1 cup raisins (optional but recommended)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, flours, baking powder and soda, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, minus the raisins, to a medium bowl and stir together.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir. Don’t over stir this. It just needs to be mixed until no flour remains. Gently fold in the raisins.
  5. Line your muffin pan with silicone muffin cups. Fill each cup to the top – these muffins don’t rise.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
