Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

Who doesn’t love a good Classic Oatmeal Raisin Muffin?These Classic Oatmeal Raisin Muffins were a request from my smallest. The picky eater, hater of all things flavourful, you know, that kid of mine. She’s lucky she’s so adorable, because feeding her sometimes makes me pull out my hair.

While classic oatmeal raisin muffins aren’t really the most spectacular muffins flavour-wise, my favorite daughter (read: only daughter, but I’m sure if I had more, she’d still be the favorite) raised a good point in asking me to make these. The classics – while not always spectacular or worthy of a billion re-pins on Pinterest- are the bomb.


These are that type of classic. Plain, simple, Oatmeal Raisin Muffins.



They are just good. They’re not super-sweet or loaded with sugar and they have a taste that really brings me back to my own childhood, before the days when muffins all of a sudden had 10 teaspoons of sugar in each one and were actually cupcakes in disguise.



The crunch of the muffin tops with these really made me happy. I love a good muffin top (don’t even go there, I’m talking about muffins, not spare tires) that gets a fabulous crispy edge. If you bake these without liners, you’re going to get that great crisp as well.

You know what? I think bran muffins should be next. The good old kind that has a batter that sits in the fridge for a week, those ones, know what I mean?

I’m sure my mom has that recipe floating around somewhere…

Happy Baking everyone!

  1. I made these exactly as specified by the recipe except I added a half a teaspoon of cinnamon. They are the worst muffins I’ve ever made. Dry and tasteless. They came out the muffin equivalent of bad corn bread.
    Even if I had managed to add more wet ingredients to salvage it there is very little going on in the way of taste besides the raisins. By the way there is about double the amount of raisins as most recipes and its not a good thing.
    The cooking temperature is also way too high so they go crunchy and dry on the outside before the middle is cooked which mine finished in about 10 minutes, well short of the recommended time, and I’d say they were still over cooked.
    I ended up feeding them to my sister in laws chickens.

    Yum. Nice, easy and not too sweet! I added nuts and coconut, and halved the brown sugar and put in a little honey. Thank you 🙂

  3. I noticed that adding the raisins is missing from the instructions. Made them anyway because I’ve made a lot of muffins in my day. For novice bakers though, that could be a problem, Good basic muffin.

  4. I made these and they are good. I’m wondering if you have the nutrition value( calories)?thanks
