Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

So before I share this wonderful recipe with you, I would like to give a huge thank you to Erin at Love, Fun and Football for the awesome new blog design! I love it so much!!


This recipe for instant oatmeal muffins is adapted from Right to the End.

Instant Oatmeal Muffins {yields twelve}

  • 1 cup dried fruit or nuts (optional)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 packets of single-serve instant oatmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon, nutmeg, or some combination of the two
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white or brown sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Grease muffin pan or line with paper cups.
  3. Combine dried fruit/nuts, milk, 1/3 cup sugar, and oil.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, baking powder, cinnamon/nutmeg, allspice, and salt.
  5. Combine bowls and stir just enough to mix well.
  6. Spoon evenly into muffin cups.
  7. Using the remaining 1 tablespoon white or brown sugar, sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon over the top of each muffin batter.
  8. Bake for 14-18 minutes.

My notes regarding this recipe:
  • I used one cup of fresh chopped apple.
  • I feel as though there is probably too much oil in this recipe.
  • I used apple cinnamon oatmeal, but any flavor you would like will work. In the past, I have used peaches & cream, bananas & cream, strawberries & cream, blueberries & cream, and combinations of those flavors.
  • I use cinnamon, not nutmeg.
  • I have never used allspice in this recipe. In fact, I'm not even sure what is in allspice...
  • I use sea salt instead of regular table salt.
  • I usually use brown sugar to top the muffins, and I don't measure it.

The muffin liners that I used were from Dollar Tree. I thought that they were just plain white paper, but they're actually more like wax paper. They're also a little shorter than the standard size. I would not recommend them.


  1. It looks so delicious! Yummy:)


  2. There is not much I love more in this world than starting the day with a muffin. And apple muffins are one of the best! This is a must try recipe.
