I've made these muffins for years for our growing family. Everyone loves them. I always double it and use different add-ins. Strawberries, diced cooked apples or chocolate chips are all winners here!

These were delicious. I was surprised at how good they were. The extra porridge from breakfast was put to good use. Definitely will make these again.

These are one of my all-time favorite muffins! So easy to make and I love the taste, texture--everything about them. I always make at least a double recipe and they freeze very well. I just make up 3 or 4 packets of maple brown sugar oatmeal in the microwave, let it cool and use it in the recipe, cutting the brown sugar back to 1/2 cup for a double recipe.

My family loved these. I left out the raisins, because I didn't have any but I'll add them next time AND double the recipe!

This is an absolutely delicious recipe. I must confess my leftover oatmeal had been prepared as an overnight in the crockpot and included sliced apples. Since it also contained brown sugar I omitted the brown sugar called for in this recipe, and as I had craisins I used them. Thank you so very much for sharing your idea. Otherwise I would have thrown out good leftover oatmeal!

Easy to make and very tasty. A great way to get some oatmeal in the diet. Kinda like an oatmeal/raisin cookie. I might try to experiment with a bit less sugar!

So glad I found this recipe so I don't have to gag on leftover oatmeal or throw it away! After making them several times, I've made the following changes: I use all white wheat flour, a generous half cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. They freeze great although they never last very long in there!

These muffins were tasty, just way too sweet; not as much sugar as I want my children eating first thing in the morning. It was more like eating a cookie. Also, my muffins did not rise, they were flat and oily. I did substitute fresh ground wheat flour, which typically makes no difference, but maybe did this time.

Delicious! Very moist, but I find my family liked them better with my using instant oatmeal rather than old fashioned. I left out raisins just because we don't care for them.

My family LOVES these! I usually have leftover oatmeal - I can never tell how much they are going to eat. Now, I make sure I have some leftover so that I can make these muffins!
