Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Breakfast Muffin

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins at The Happy Housewife

When it comes to breakfast I love quick and easy recipes. If the recipe can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer, I like it even better.

Today’s recipe is for a simple muffin that my family loves for breakfast. It is pretty healthy and since it contains oats it is a little heartier than your average muffin. You could make this even healthier by using part whole wheat flour.

I love to make a big batch of these and freeze them for those mornings when we need a really quick and easy breakfast.

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup applesauce

  1. In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
  2. Beat in the egg.

    You freeze them fully cooked? And how long will they stay in the freezer?
