Eggnog Oatmeal Muffins

I totally overshot the runway with eggnog this holiday season, purchasing 2 quarts of it right before Christmas.

I love eggnog, but didn’t really have anyone else to help me drink it.

Now I have a lot leftover and am looking for creative ways to use it.

So, I decided to whip up a batch of eggnog oatmeal muffins for breakfast last week.

I used my favorite old-fashioned oatmeal muffins recipe as a starting point and made adjustments from there, substituting a combination of eggnog and milk for the buttermilk. Sprinkling them with a little cinnamon sugar gave them a sweet crunchy topping.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18-22 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and place the muffin tin on a wire rack to cool for about 5 minutes. Then carefully remove the muffins from the tin. Enjoy while still warm.
