Makes 24 muffins.
The longer you allow the oatmeal to soak into the milk the sweeter the muffins taste.
1 duck egg, and 1 chicken egg makes for a perfectly fluffy muffin.
If you are anything like me and try to eliminate dishes when baking, I assure you that you can dump all ingredients into the same bowl. My kitchenaid is my most used item on my homestead.
Hearth club happens to be my favorite baking powder. And no they do not pay me to tell you this.
These muffins don’t last long around our homestead. With just the right amount of sweetness, and fluffy texture these make for a perfect snack on the go. Or post workout bite.
If you are looking for an easy, oatmeal snack I hope you give these muffins a try.
