These Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Muffins are just the sweet to add to your next brunch menu – delicious AND good for you!
If you’re a regular around these parts, you know that we are not the “healthy food” blog. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate tasty food, good-for-you or not. This Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Muffins recipe is an example of that. They just so happen to be irresistible AND pretty darn wholesome. Nothing like having your cake – err, muffin – and eating it, too!
Don’t be turned off by the healthier ingredients in these muffins. I don’t use whole wheat flour, wheat germ and flaxseed on a regular basis, but I find they keep really well when tightly wrapped in the freezer.
In fact, these Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Muffins are not dense and heavy at all, despite the “tough” looking ingredients. They are remarkably light and tender with just the right amount of sweetness from the dried fruits. Not a raisin fan? Pick any combination of fruits you like. I’ve done various combos of raisins, craisins, dates and figs, depending on what I have in my pantry. And they all work great.
Prepping ahead for your upcoming brunch? These muffins freeze beautifully, which makes them a great option for weekend guests or even for a healthier afternoon carb fix.
