Cooking Together…One-Bowl Oatmeal Muffins

This week I tried a new muffin recipe from Simple Bites. Here’s the basic recipe, but be sure to read the original post for all the different flavor combinations and tips for making the best muffins ever.

Here are my thoughts on the recipe:

Ease of preparation:
These were easy to make…just make sure you plan for the time to soak the oats first.

Overall opinion:
I thought these were delicious!

Husband’s thoughts:
He didn’t think these muffins were sweet enough. I personally don’t want my muffins super sweet, since I’m eating them for breakfast. But I think a different flavor combination would make them sweeter…like something with chocolate. Or, I might add a streusel topping next time.

Would you make them again?
Yes, I want to try different flavor combinations. This time I did raspberry coconut.

Did you omit or add anything?
I was totally unprepared to make these muffins so I had to do what I could and they still turned out great. The first thing is that I didn’t have vinegar, so I used buttermilk, as suggested. Secondly, I didn’t have dark brown sugar so I used golden brown sugar. I also only had about 3/4 cup of oats, so I had to fill in with quick cook oats, which are NOT recommended. I also would have loved to try the raspberry/dark chocolate combo, but didn’t have any chocolate on hand, so I used coconut. And even with all of my changes, they were still good!

Would you change anything next time?
Next time I’m going to try to do things right and have all the necessary ingredients on hand!
