Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

Yes, I know. Another muffin recipe. At least you know where you can turn if you are in a muffin rut! :)

Seriously, I do make dinner for my family. But, since it is just me and the kids, one meal usually lasts us for at least 2 nights. Add on to that the fact that I eat friends' houses 2-3 times a week and that makes for not many nights of cooking here at home. I am so blessed to have great friends who are great cooks who have me over all the time!

So sit back and enjoy all the baked goods and desserts! But... be on the lookout for 2 FANTASTIC dinners coming up soon. Seriously, they are so good!

Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

2 cups flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/4 tsp allspice
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 375.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour through salt. Stir in oatmeal, raisins, and nuts. In medium bowl, lightly beat egg. Stir in oil, milk, and vanilla. Pour wet into dry and mix just until incorporated.

Fill muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes or until tops are golden.

I'm with you on only cooking dinner 2 to 3 times a week. Since it is only my husband and I, we have left overs for awhile.

Your muffins sound delicious.

Hey, I'm totally okay with all the baked yummies and desserts!

That's awesome that you have female friends that you are so close too!

Dinner? I'll believe it when I see it!

Just kidding!

I know how that goes. I don't know how to cook in small portions. So I always cook like my whole family is there, even when the husband is gone. Then we have leftovers forever!
