Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 12 muffins
Author Adapted from my late Mom's recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose plain flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mild olive oil not extra virgin
  • 1 cup juicy raisins or sultanas

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C or 170° for a fan oven).
  • Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper baking cups.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the egg, buttermilk, vanilla and oil.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until mixed.
  • Gently stir in the raisins or sultanas.
  • Scoop the batter into muffin cups - I use a quick release ice cream scoop or a ⅓ cup measure to do this.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Cool in the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  • Muffins taste best slightly warm but they reheat well the next day.
