Super Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Super Easy Oatmeal Muffins

As I'm writing this blog I realised that breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day, and my other favourite thing is meals that can be done in a muffin tin. I don't have a lot of pleasant memories about oatmeal, and stopped eating it for a long time, but these oatmeal muffins are so fancy; I couldn't ignore them.

And they are very easy to make! I found a recipe that looked delicious, but I skipped the ingredients that are difficult to find in this South African market. I also don't like overly complicated recipes, I believe you can achieve the same quality with day to day ingredients.

So I went grocery shopping, having no idea that there are more than one kind of oats. I sticked to rolled-oats as those are the ones I've known my whole life.
