The muggins are some of the most popular items on my blog, so I am happy to add another to the mix – oatmeal cinnamon muggin with walnuts and craisins. And this one is gluten free.
If you follow this blog, you may already have a container of “muggin mix” in your pantry. Leave it for another day because this one won’t use the mix. Reason? There’s no flour, wheat germ or ground flax meal. Just oats.
I was hungry for oatmeal, but also knew I need the protein from an egg. So – voila! An oatmeal muggin. The texture was very similar to the other muggins, which is great for those who cannot do gluten. Anyone would enjoy this delicious breakfast. It was so filling, I had to share the last bites with Zoe the dog. And you can leave out the walnuts and craisins – if you’re nuts!
They add a ton of texture and flavor, but it’s your call.
Yes, I did think about sneaking some chocolate chips into this, but I’m saving that for another post.
Ingredients for Oatmeal Cinnamon Muggin
1 TBS honey
2 TBS plain yogurt (or vanilla flavored)
3 TBS oats – I used old fashioned
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon (More if you’re like my hubby who can never get enough cinnamon.)
2 TBS chopped walnuts (Pecans would be delightful.)
2 TBS dried cranberries (Or raisins or golden raisins.)
Use a mug that will hold 16 oz or more.
Put the ingredients into the mug in the order given and whisk with a fork or small whisk.
Microwave 1 1/2 – 2 minutes until the center is done.
Invert onto a plate and enjoy warm or cool.
Share with your friends. These are perfect for teens who need a healthy breakfast, or seniors living alone, or folks with diabetes or those who need gluten free food.
