Sourdough Oatmeal Raisin Muffins #MuffinMonday

The fresh tang of sourdough combines with the heartiness of oats and the sweetness of raisins for a muffin so delicious and moist you won't want to stop at one.

It is Muffin Monday and what a great lineup today........

Muffin Monday
#MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.

The Muffins that I'm sharing today start with your sourdough discard.  I jumped onto the sourdough bandwagon a couple of months ago and I hate throwing away the discard.  This has resulted in my quest to find sourdough recipes that I can make with it instead.

I found this recipe on  The author's notes state that it is originally adapted from The Sourdough Cookbook by Rita Davenport which is no longer in print.  I made this recipe  pretty much as written by Yankiwi.

It is made in the traditional muffin method whereas you mix together the wet ingredients in one bowl, the dry ingredients in another and then combine the two.  This recipe results in an amazing recipe that is going to make a lot of appearances in this household.  Can't wait to try different flavor combos.

  1. Oatmeal and raisins are a match made in cookie heaven, so why not muffins! Love the addition of the sour dough starter for even more flavor, Wendy.

  2. I hate tossing discard too! Great muffins. I used to make a lot of waffles with my discard.

  3. Muffins are such a great way to use sourdough discard! These sound fabulous.
