Is it time for a muffin/coffee or tea break?

There is just something comforting about a homemade muffin -- straight out of the oven, moist, warm, deliciously nutritious~! Comfort!

Wouldn't you like to come over for a cup of coffee or tea and warm delicious homemade muffin? Let's make a date!

This recipe was actually given to me from a friend of mine and with scratch handwriting I wrote it down on a piece of note paper. I found this scratch paper when I was cleaning and organizing my office. I was so delighted! I hadn't made these in awhile -- and so inspired to make some!
However, I did not write the name of the original recipe on the paper-- so, I decided to call them Lil Daisies Fabulous Oatmeal Muffins!

I am delighted to share the recipe with you! I am going to make some either today or tomorrow -- because just writing about them is making my mouth water with a craving for them.

One thing I love about this recipe is that it is simple, but diverse! You can literally make them "your own" flavor and liking with just the snap of a few ingredients. It is a great recipe.
If you try them out -- I would love to hear what you came up with. Please share!
