Recipe: Caramelized Oatmeal Raisin Mini Muffins

I saw this recipe on and knew I had to try it!

Of course, I modified it slightly.  And made it mini.  Because that's what I do.

My take on the recipe is below.

Caramelized Oatmeal Raisin Mini Muffins

1/4 c butter
2/3 c rolled oats
2/3 c brown sugar, divided
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2/3 c water (or liquid whey)

1 c all purpose flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/3 c rolled oats
1 Tbsp baking powder
4 Tbsp flax seed meal (I used beveri)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 c liquid whey or skim milk
1 1/3 c raisins
1 Tbsp  flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly grease a mini muffin pan, or use paper liners.
Browning oats, spices, and brown sugar

Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook 2/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until golden brown.
Bubbling away with whey and remaining brown sugar
Stir in 2/3 cup whey or water and remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar. Cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Mmmmm. Caramelized goodness

In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup uncooked oats, baking powder and flax seed meal. Whisk together egg and whey or milk. Make a well in the center of flour mixture, and pour in egg mixture and cooked oatmeal. Mix just until combined. Dredge raisins in 1 tablespoon flour, then fold into batter. Spoon into muffin cups.

Bake in preheated oven for ~15 minutes.
