[The Secret Recipe Club] - Oatmeal & Cranberry Muffins

Its posting time again for my group of the The Secret Recipe Club.
As you already know by now, there are four groups of lovely bloggers who visit each others assigned blogs keeping it a secret from one another until the big reveal day.
For me there are two exciting moments: First one when I get the email of my assigned blog and second one when I see who was assigned to me and what recipe(s) they made and what they think about my blog in general.
Hold your breath for the following reveal days:
Group A - September 3 Group B - September 10 Group C - September 17 Group D - September 24
How this all works? well, just click on that logo on the left and you will get to a whole wonderful website that will answer all your questions and more!
Why I joined? Because I think it is a fun way to discover new blogs and step outta my comfort zone a bit by being assigned an unknown blog and having to find a recipe that suits me and tempts me to cook myself.

My assigned blogger for this month was Trisha and her blog "My Hobbie Lobbie", a lovely blog with lots of nice recipes. I loved scrolling through her recipes and found me some nice yummies I put on my baking/cooking shortlist. I was looking for something nice and not too overly sweet to bake for breakfast at work and found those lovely WW, oatmeal and raisin muffins. They turned out great and I loved them.

I only omitted the rasins cause I really dislike them and used brown sugar instead of a combination of white and packed brown sugar, otherwise I followed her recipe quite closely. The muffins turned out to be a hit. Nice and fluffy and really really tasty. Only downside: they did not last very long and were gone in no time... ;o)
