Here’s one of my family’s favorite breakfast treats. These yummy Raisin Oatmeal Muffins fast became a regular breakfast option for my food prep. The muffins also make a great afternoon snack. My son loves them with peanut butter on top!
- 3 cups gluten free oats – I use Bob’s Red Mill
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1.5 tablespoons chia seeds
- ½ tsp pink Himalayan salt or fine sea salt
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup organic maple syrup – I use Kirkland’s Brand
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
- ¾ cup golden raisins
- ¾ cup crasins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup muffin pan by spraying it generously with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients adding the almond milk last. Stir together until well combined. You will need to stir frequently while you fill up the muffin cups otherwise the almond milk settles to the bottom.
Fill the cups to the top with the Oatmeal Muffin mixture. Bake in oven for 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool completely and remove from pan.
I make these tasty Raisin Oatmeal Muffins about every other week. To store them in the freezer for use throughout the week, remove them from the pan when cooled and put them in a plastic freezer bag.
To heat up a frozen muffin, place in microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute.

I am going to make these! Thanks for sharing!
Please let me know how you like them! Thanks.
These look so good, Kim! I’ve been baking too many unhealthy comfort foods these past few weeks, and this looks like a much healthier project for my baking time. I also like the idea of making a big batch and then freezing them and having them on hand for the week ahead … that’s one of my favorite strategies for keeping my hungry guys fed. Will definitely be making these!
Would love to know how they like them. Don’t forget the peanut butter just in case!
Sounds good! And easy to make!
Kim, These look yummy and come at a perfect time. I need to start eating healthier.
I have all the ingredients except avocado oil. Can I substitute another oil?
Thank you. Can’t wait to try them.
You can use coconut oil too! Thanks,
I am a healthy cook who is also watching my cholestoral numbers so these are perfect. Thank you for sharing!
Let me know if you try them. Thanks for stopping in!
