Ingredients

Muffins:

  • 1-1/4 cups white wheat flour
  • 1 cup quick oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup light eggnog
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract

Topping:

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Position an oven rack in the middle of your oven and preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Coat the cups of a standard 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt until well blended.
  • In another bowl whisk together the eggnog, milk, oil, egg and rum extract until well blended.
  • Pour the eggnog mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until combined.
  • Evenly distribute the muffin batter among the 12 muffin cups, filling them no more than 3/4 full.
  • To make the topping, combine the 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a little bowl and sprinkle evenly on the tops of the muffins.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18-22 minutes.
  • 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.
