Recipe For Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Muffins


I am partial to oatmeal, especially with raisins. It can be in any form: hot cereal, cookies, granola or bread. These muffins are now in that list, too. They made the perfect breakfast or snack or even dessert. Full of plump raisins and cinnamon, I cannot say enough good things about them. Oh! And they are good for you, too. This recipe comes from the book Prevent a Second Heart Attack. The only thing I will do next time I make them is to either reduce the sugar or substitute a different form of sweetener (like maple syrup or honey).
