One-Bowl Oatmeal Muffins: Basic Recipe

Be sure to read the recipe all the way through before getting started. You will note that the oats soak in the milk 1 hour prior to assembling the rest of the ingredients, so take that into consideration before starting out.


1 cup milk*

1 tsp. white vinegar

1 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)

1 large egg, at room temperature

¼ cup dark brown sugar

½ cup butter, melted and cooled slightly

1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. nutmeg, freshly ground

½ tsp. cinnamon, freshly ground

Add-ins of your choosing (see above suggestions)


1. Combine milk, vinegar and oats in a large bowl and let stand one hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a twelve-cup muffin tin and line with cupcake papers.

3. Crack the egg into the oat and milk mixture; add brown sugar and mix to combine. Stir in melted butter.

4. Sift remaining ingredients into the bowl: flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, & spices. Gently fold into batter, taking care not to over mix.

5. Sprinkle add-in and flavorings of your choice and combine muffin batter gently.

6. Use a large ice cream scoop or 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop batter into muffin tins. Bake until light brown and tops spring back when gently touched, about 10-12 minutes. Note: Muffins will take slightly longer to bake if you are adding fresh fruit such as blueberries or rhubarb.

7. Remove from oven and cool in tins. To remove, run a sharp knife around the edges and pop muffins out. Enjoy!


*You may also substitute 1 cup buttermilk, and then omit the vinegar from the recipe.
