Homemade muffins for the win!

Summer is almost here and my children have 3 days until they are out of school. I’m sure you are all well aware how much children tend to eat while they are home for the summer.

This cinnamon raisin muffin recipe is one of MANY baked goods I will be making in the coming months. In an effort to keep my grocery budget under control, I need to start doing quite a bit of baking.

My teens are active and hungry and can go through a box of organic snack food in about 30 seconds. A nice batch of homemade muffins will last 2 days if I’m lucky. But, I guess as long as they aren’t filling up on soda and candy I shouldn’t complain, right? They definitely seemed happy to wake up to homemade muffins instead of a bowl of cereal!

Making Muffins for Breakfast 

When I went looking for a muffin recipe to try, I realized that I had very few options to choose from. I had no carrots to make carrot muffins or blueberries to make blueberry muffins.

I didn’t really do a lot of PLANNING before making this cinnamon raisin muffin recipe. However, the one thing I always have in the house is a huge box of raisins. They go in overnight oatmeal and homemade trail mix.

We even put them on cold cereal or use them for ants on a log. We prefer the golden raisins but any variety will work for this muffin recipe.

When making homemade muffins, use an ice cream scoop with trigger to fill the cups for less mess! I prefer the unbleached muffin cups and the muffins just pop right out of them.
