Rolled oats add healthy fiber and a chewy texture to these light breakfast muffins.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon or lime peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1/3 cup lemon or lime curd
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, oats, granulated sugar, baking powder, poppy seeds, lemon peel and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine egg, milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).
