Martha Stewart’s Oatmeal Muffins are a delicious breakfast, snack, or lunch box treat.
I turned these hearty muffins into oatmeal chocolate chip muffins by adding chocolate chips to them, but you can easily stir in blueberries, raisins, and more.
It is no secret that my family loves muffins. I made quite a few different muffins for my Year of Martha Stewart Cooking Challenge last year and these were one of our favorites.
When I realized that I had not shared them with you I knew I had to share the recipe.
Martha Stewart’s Oatmeal Muffins are hearty muffins. They are not a light and fluffy bakery style muffin, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t delicious. These muffins are so good!
Because these area a hearty muffin they are perfect for breakfast.
Martha Stewart adds blueberries to her version for a blueberry oatmeal muffin. My family likes them with blueberries, but we like them even better with chocolate chips.
This is a basic oatmeal muffin batter, so you really can stir in whatever add-ins you like.
Blueberries, raspberries, raisins, and chocolate chips are all good stirred into Martha Stewart’s Oatmeal muffins.
What I Changed
Besides adding chocolate chips to these muffins I also changed the liquid. I used buttermilk instead of just regular milk. I think the texture is much better because of the acidic nature of buttermilk. You can also use a buttermilk substitute if you do not have buttermilk.
Since I added chocolate chips I also left out the cinnamon. If you use blueberries or other fruit feel free to add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
Are Oatmeal Muffins Gluten Free?
Martha Stewart’s Oatmeal Muffins are not gluten free, but they are easy to make gluten free. I share how in the recipe. All you have to do is use gluten free quick oats and Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend.
Other blends might work, but I have only used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 blend.
- flour or Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend for gf version
- quick cooking oats or gluten free quick cooking oats for gf version
- baking powder
- buttermilk or milk with lemon juice
- chocolate chips

Can I use regular gluten free oats for these muffins?
I have not tried it, but I think it would probably work. It will give you a different texture though. You might try grinding some of the oats in a blender or food processor to make them a little finer. I wouldn’t do all of them, but part of them. If you try using regular oats I would love to hear how they work.
