Raisin Oat Muffins

Try this recipe for yummy muffins. I made a batch and froze what was left individually. So now we can pull a couple from the freezer, thaw in the microwave  and enjoy them on the spot! I cut the recipe from the American Profile section of our paper. Kudos to Hazel Nute, Tacoma, Washington
