oatmeal muffins

This week I had a craving for oatmeal muffins, which is funny because I don’t think I’ve ever eaten an oatmeal muffin before.

I topped them with a chai spice dusting, but I didn’t mention that in the title because I’ve been making so many chai things lately that I didn’t want you to think this was becoming a intuitive eating + ED recovery + motherhood blog that features a ton of chai spice recipes….even tho that is how the blog has been looking lately.  Perhaps summer will bring some different flavor cravings into my life!

But until then…here are these oatmeal muffins with an optional chai topping.  Hope you enjoy! Have a good weekend, guys! 

oatmeal muffins

Yield: makes 9 muffins


1 cup milk
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

chai topping (optional)
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ginger


Preheat oven to 400ºF.  In a bowl, combine wet ingredients (first 3 ingredients) and then add in all remaining ingredients.  Stir until just combined.  Divide between 9 greased muffin tins.  If adding chai topping, combine all spices + sugar in a small bowl.  Spoon over each muffin top.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
