Recipe Swap Blog Party – My Mom’s Oatmeal Muffins

My Mom’s Oatmeal Muffins

This recipe is from my Mother and this is the first recipe she learned to make. I think this recipe goes back to my great grandmother and my family has been making it ever since then.  I grew up eating them and I love them fresh from the oven with butter and jam. What I really like about this recipe is that they are not overly sweet.


  • 1-cup oatmeal (old-fashioned slow cook)
  • 1-cup milk
  • 1-cup flour
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 TBSP sugar
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a saucepan, scald milk and butter.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add oatmeal and scalded milk. Combine and let sit until cools off.
  4. Then combine flour, egg, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
  5. In a muffin pan, pour dough into pre-buttered muffin cups.
  6. Bake for 23 to 27 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven.
  8. Enjoy!

* Makes 8 large muffins or 12 small muffins.

  1. I have never had an oatmeal muffin. They sound really good. I will have to try them since you said they are not too sweet. I don’t like really sweet things for breakfast!

    Thank you for sharing your recipe on Foodie Friends Friday. I hope you will bring another recipe next week.

    There is something wrong with this recipe. It makes a very thick almost cookie dough like batter and it does not bake up like muffins. I thought I messed it up and sent it to a friend and it did not work for her either.

      Thank you so much for your input. I make these muffins often and they always come out like the photos. The only thing I can think of is the type of oatmeal you used. For this recipe I use old-fashioned slow cook oatmeal, if you used instant oatmeal I know it would not come out properly. I will add the to my recipe. Thanks again, we pride ourselves on our recipes and try to be as accurate as possible. 🙂
