Oatmeal raisin cookies have been a go-to special treat for my kitchen helper. This flavor combination has been a favorite of his for years. Since we make oatmeal raisin cookies every once in a while, I thought I would transform his favorite treat into a muffin. I always love making muffin recipes since they are an easy on-the-go snack while we travel to and from playdates and summer adventures. This oatmeal raisin muffin recipe makes six standard size muffins, which is great in my house because after they are consumed we are ready for something new to bake. I hate to have food lying around, right?
With only two bowls and a spoon you can have these muffins made with your kitchen helper in no time. They will love to pour all of the ingredients into the bowls and mix. The muffin tin provides a new challenge for them if you are both ready for a little mess. Scooping and pouring the batter into the wells is something I have always completed, but now that my kitchen helper is a bit older I offer this challenge to him. Practice will only help in developing this motor skill and hand eye coordination. Have fun with this recipe and enjoy this special treat.
