National Oatmeal Muffin Day is a delicious and healthy way to start the day, and it’s even more enjoyable on December 19th! Join us in celebrating this special day by whipping up a batch of oatmeal muffins.
The traditional wheat flour muffin recipe is commonly known, but on National Oatmeal Muffin Day, it’s time to switch it up and use oatmeal! Not only is it tasty, but it’s also incredibly nutritious and will provide energy throughout the day. There are two types of muffins – English and American. English muffins use yeast dough, while American muffins use baking powder or baking soda.
Muffins first appeared in England around the 10th century. Initially, they were intended for the working class and were made from leftover dough. Later on, they began to adorn the tables of nobility. The first recipes were shared in cookbooks during the 19th century. People quickly fell in love with how easy muffins were to make – just about anyone could do it!
Oatmeal muffins are best baked in molds – now there is a vast selection of such products. It’s impossible to work with liquid dough without them, otherwise you won’t get the desired result. Feel free to decorate the muffins as you please!
