Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins

I love a wide variety of breadbut today I want to share with you a truly delicious and easy recipe. This is another of my favorite recipes that I have had in my recipe box since 1993. This Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins recipe is especially great if you have any leftover cooked oatmeal. It only takes a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand.

Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins

I slightly modified the original recipe by adding 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Feel free to add chopped walnuts and/or dark chocolate chips to the mix as well. If you do not have any leftover oatmeal you can quickly make enough for this recipe. Simply place 1/3 cup oats into a microwave-safe bowl and add 3/4 cup water.

Stir every 30 seconds until the oatmeal is fully cooked. (I cooked my oatmeal in a large coffee mug for a total of 2 minutes – oatmeal was a thick consistency). Allow the oatmeal to cool to room temperature before adding to the egg mixture. If you add the oatmeal while it is still hot it may cook the eggs and you will have to start all over.
