You don’t have to pull out a lot of equipment or rooting through your cupboard or pantry for many ingredients to make these scrumptious oatmeal raisin muffins. A minimum amount of effort on your part is all that is required. Basically, it is about mixing the wet ingredients with dry ingredients, stirring with a large spoon or a fork before pouring into your muffin tins.

If your raisins shriveled up somewhat since you last baked, you can salvage them quickly. Measure out what you need and add about two tablespoons of water before microwaving them for about fifteen seconds. Scoop out the raisins and ditch any extra water for this recipe.

Unlike flour, oats can take longer to hydrate for baking. This is why is it important to soak them with the milk for about a half hour before starting this recipe for the best moist and fluffy texture for these oatmeal muffins. Otherwise, your oaty muffins can be dry and chewy.

Use your measuring spoons and always level baking powder or baking soda for baking. Though you may be tempted to use a teaspoon from your silverware, the amount you take out is not as accurate. This slight difference may seem insignificant, but it matters for the outcome of your baked goods since too much of either or too little can ruin your efforts.

Give these delectable oatmeal muffins a try because they are everything you want when biting into oat muffins. Please also share my recipe with your family and friends and do come back to my blog for more.
