Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Add the oats to the Deluxe Cooking Blender. Replace and lock the lid. Press the wheel to select the PULSE setting and blend on setting 6 until the oats have the texture of flour, about 10 seconds.

  3. Spray the wells of the Muffin Pan with oil using the Kitchen Spritzer. Pour the batter evenly into the wells of the pan.

  4. For the topping, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the muffins.

  5. Bake for 20–22 minutes, or until the Cake Tester & Releaser comes out clean when inserted in the centers.

  6. Let the muffins stand for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
