Brown Sugar Oatmeal Muffins

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Muffins

This cozy recipe is made with the ultimate breakfast ingredients many individuals, like me, love. I for one, can have some delicious oatmeal any morning. I love the texture and the warmth I feel as it fills my belly. Of course, this muffin is not limited to morning time, you can serve them as a desert or a mid-day snack between meals. My favorite way to eat these muffins are for breakfast, with any kind of berries, mimicking a morning oatmeal.

These brown sugar oatmeal muffins are a sophisticated take on oatmeal. Not only are they packed with chopped nuts, pecans, or walnuts (your choice), but they have caramel undertones from the sweetness coming from the brown sugar. The crunch of the nuts and tasty flavors from the oats are definitely the perfect showstoppers of this treat.

At Kathey Jo’s Kitchen, we love this recipe because they are just so easy to eat. There is no plate necessary, and you could even have them on the go. If you prefer to eat them at home, you could totally have them with a dab of peanut butter, some fruit, or even topped with Nutella. However you decide to consume them, I know you will love them. Follow the recipe, I’m sure you’ll find most of them in your pantry already!
