Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins: Use 1/4 cup softened peanut butter in place of the oil.
Oatmeal Banana Muffins: Use oat flour in this recipe for Banana Muffins.
Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins: Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the batter before baking. You can also roll the muffins in cinnamon sugar after they cool if desired.
Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins: After stirring the batter, add 1/2 cup blueberries and stir very gently, so as not to break the berries.
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins: Add 3/4 cup chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips to the batter. You can also press a few chocolate chips into the top of each muffin right before baking.
Oat Muffin Baking Tips & Tricks
- If you only have old fashioned oats, you can make your own quick oats by quickly pulsing 5-10 times in a food processor. (I’ve not tried steel cut oats in the recipe.)
- The liners peel off easily if you let the recipe sit overnight. If you don’t want to wait, skipping the liners and greasing the pan well instead is also fine.
- For oil free muffins, you can sub almond or peanut butter heated until easily stir-able. Readers also have written in to say applesauce, yogurt, pumpkin, or mashed banana work.
- The tasty muffins are naturally gluten free if made with oat flour. If you need to ensure the oats haven’t even come into contact with wheat products in the factory, both Quaker and Bob’s Red Mill make certified gluten free quick oats, and Bob’s makes certified gf oat flour.

Oatmeal Muffins Recipe
These soft healthy oatmeal muffins make a perfect easy breakfast or snack!
Total Time 20 minutes
Yield 12 muffins
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1 1/3 cup milk of choice
- 1 tbsp white or cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup oil or nut butter, or applesauce or mashed banana for fat-free
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
- 1 cup white, oat, or spelt flour (for flourless, make these Keto Muffins)
- 1/2 tsp each: baking soda and salt
- optional 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- optional 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Whisk first 4 ingredients in a bowl. Let sit 10 minutes (important). Preheat oven to 350 F. Add all remaining ingredients, stir to form a batter, and portion into a lined muffin tin. Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out mostly clean. Let cool completely, as they are delicate when they first come out of the oven. I loosely cover leftovers and store in the fridge, or they can also be frozen. (If you have any issues with the muffins sticking to the liners, just wait a day and even the applesauce version peels away easily.) View Nutrition Facts
