The Best Oatmeal Muffins...a must try!!!
I made these muffins this morning, and had to share the recipe. I make them probably once a week, and I will never buy a store bought muffin mix again. They are so tasty. The crumb topping is so yummy. We love to put our favorite jam on top, or drizzle them with honey. With some fresh fruit on the side and a glass of Orange Juice, this is a wholesome breakfast...great to start off the day! I can't take the credit for the recipe. It is from Mr. Quaker himself! Try them out, I hope you like them. The flower in the picture comes from our yard. We have several Peony bushes that have the most beautiful flowers. We just love them. Unfortunately they are only in bloom for a few more weeks. If you are ever looking for a good perennial, these are great! It's going to be a nice weekend outside...my boys are itchin' to play outside and work in the yard. Hope you all have a great weekend and Father's Day!
