I woke up this morning feeling tired of having oatmeal and raisins for breakfast. As much as I want to eat healthy and keeping my cholesterol low, I wanted to have some delicious looking breakfast to fill my tummy. I thought of eating bread but I discovered there was none, so, I thought why not make my own? I searched the internet and found a good recipe, Whole Wheat Oatmeal and Raisin Muffins at My Recipes. I didnt have much of the ingredients listed on their website so I replaced it with what I have and followed the same procedures ( I just changed the recipe name since I'll be using steel-cut oatmeal instead of whole wheat. So, I got my baking utensils, fired-up my oven, (and I'm talking about eight o'clock in the morning) and baked my own muffin. 

Steel-Cut Oatmeal-Raisin Muffin


1 cup flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbsps. wheat germ
1 1/2 tsps. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup quick cooking steel-cut oatmeal
1/2 cup whole grain rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped almonds
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla oil 
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup boiling water
cooking oil ( for brushing inside of muffin pans)


  1. Combine flour and next six ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in oats and raisins. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk, oil, vanilla, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. For a more tender muffin, stir in boiling water. Let batter stand for15 minutes then add the almonds.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F or 190°C.
  3. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups brushed with cooking oil. Bake  for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pans immediately; (Note: since mine was sticking to the pans,I had to wait for about 5 minutes before I was able to remove it clean). Place it on a wire rack.
Pair it with Soya Milk. Enjoy your breakfast!
