Today is National Oatmeal Muffin Day! Bake a fresh batch of these healthy goodies!

BAKED OATMEAL MUFFINS

Inspired by the popularity of baked oatmeal, this recipe takes it one step further by baking them in individual muffin tins.

Make these oatmeal muffins for a filling, portable breakfast and freeze leftovers to pull out for another day. All you have to do is pull them out to thaw overnight, or warm in the microwave for 45-60 seconds to reheat. If not eating on the go, you can make them even more decadent by drizzling with warm milk.

Ingredients

  • 2½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup dried fruit or nuts (optional)
  • 2 cups fruit, fresh or frozen (for these muffins I used 1 cup chopped apples and 1 cup chopped pears)
