With the holidays coming up, oatmeal muffins are perfect to have on hand to serve the family, overnight guests, or as a wonderful hostess gift They can be made ahead of time, and stored at room temperature up to a week, or frozen for 3 months!
Not only does oatmeal make the muffins taste great, its also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Thiamin, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Manganese.
Make them your own! You can customize these muffins with any kind of dried or fresh fruit, veggies or nuts. I love taking them as hostess gifts along with some fruit. Its breakfast in a basket.
Can’t wait to share them with Christine on Atlanta and Co this morning, NBC 11 Alive in Atlanta, December 19th!
