Oatmeal Raisin Muffins Recipe

This is the one if you’re looking for a simple homemade muffin recipe! The chew of the added raisins takes it over the top, and the added oatmeal creates the perfect texture.

My boys love having muffins on hand for when they’re having a snack attack. I love making a double batch of these yummy muffins because we eat through them all quickly!

My boys were shocked at how much they loved the texture and taste, as they weren’t sure of the added raisins. I can tell you that they were surprised and grabbed another for the road!

What can I use in a muffin recipe instead of raisins?

If you’re looking to switch up the traditional raisin addition in your muffin recipe, there are plenty of delicious alternatives that can add unique flavors and textures to your baked goods.

Consider substituting raisins with dried cranberries for a tart twist or dried cherries for a sweet and slightly tangy flavor. If you’re after something exotic, chopped dates or dried apricots can offer a rich sweetness that complements any muffin recipe beautifully.

For those who prefer a fresher, juicier addition, blueberries or chopped apples make excellent alternatives, adding moisture and flavor to every bite.

Each of these substitutes brings a new taste profile to your muffins and allows you to customize the recipe to suit your preference or simply work with what you have on hand.

How do I store leftover baked muffins?

Proper storage of leftover baked muffins is essential to maintaining their freshness and flavor. Once completely cooled, place the muffins in an airtight container lined with paper towels. This helps absorb any excess moisture, preventing the muffins from becoming soggy.

If you plan to eat them within a few days, keep the container at room temperature in a cool, dry place. You can freeze the muffins for longer storage.

Wrap each individually in plastic wrap or place them in a single layer in a freezer bag, squeezing out as much air as possible before sealing.

When you’re ready to enjoy a muffin, thaw it at room temperature or gently warm it in the microwave for a delicious treat that tastes freshly baked.
