Oatmeal Tea Bread/Muffins

Oatmeal Tea Bread/Muffin


I made a couple more batches of muffins to freeze for lunches (again) on Sunday, and for some reason I didn’t double these muffins.  And I should have!  They’re all gone!  So to keep the troops happy I am making a double batch today.  We love them for their pecan crumble on top, but if your school has a NO NUTS POLICY like our Prep, just leave the nuts out of the crumble.  I only put it on half of the muffins so that Miss 5 could take some to Prep.  And if you fancy them for breakfast like I do, just leave the sugary crumble off the top altogether.  I think next time I’ll make some especially for me and stir pecans through the batter.  YUM!!!!!

And if you like you can make it in a loaf tin and call it Oatmeal Tea Bread.  Personally I think it looks pretty impressive as a loaf with the pecan crumble on top if it’s your turn to take morning tea to playgroup.
