Heart-healthy Oatmeal-Fruit Muffins

Try this easy muffin recipe to add heart-healthy oat fiber to your breakfast or snacks.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. oil (such as canola oil)
  • 1 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 c. oatmeal (uncooked)
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. raisins or dried cranberries
  • Nonstick cooking spray or oil (to grease muffin cups)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put the egg, milk and oil in a small mixing bowl. Slowly stir them together. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and dried fruit. Stir until they are mixed.

Pour the egg-milk-oil mix into the medium bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until the dry ingredients are barely moistened. Do not overmix (the batter should be lumpy). Spray with nonstick cooking spray or grease each cup in the muffin pans.

Fill the muffin cups half full with batter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown.


Makes 12 muffins.
