Oatmeal Orange Raisin Muffins

Moist and delicious Orange Oatmeal Raisin Muffins:  An easy, no-fail recipe that both the kids and the grownups will love.

Mmmm!  Oranges, oatmeal and raisins!  What a great combo!  I make these muffins a LOT here because my family loves them, and my daycare hooligans do too!  They’re heavenly when they’re warm and steamy out of the oven, and they’re nutritious and delicious for a snack or to pop into a lunch bag.

How to make your delicious Oatmeal Orange Raisin Muffins:

  • 1 c. Quick Oats
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (from the jug in your fridge – not fresh squeezed, although that might work too… I’m not sure)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

Mix the 3 ingredients above in a small bowl, and let sit 15 minutes

  • 1/2  cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

In medium size bowl, cream butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  (I do it all with a wooden spoon).  Add raisins and dump in oatmeal mixture.  Stir together.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Gently stir into the powders into  the butter/sugar/oatmeal batter. (do not over stir).

The key to a light, fluffy muffin is to mix the ingredients gently until everything is just moist.  Don’t beat the lumps out of the batter.  If you over-beat your mixture, you’ll end up with a tough muffin.

Pour into muffin tin (I use paper liners, but I guess if you don’t you’d want to grease your muffin tin).

Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Oven temps may vary, but they’re done when you stick a knife in, and the knife comes out clean.
