Every Mother’s Day, I bake a batch of muffins and bring them to my family’s Mother’s Day celebration. Sadly, this year my family isn’t getting together to honor the current prescribed distancing.
Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for many, and this year seems to be particularly challenging for all of us. We’re all doing the best we can given the current situation. For me, not being able to see my family on a day we all cherish is just a bummer…there is no other way to say it.
Yet, my family is trying to improve the situation by adapting.
Instead of gathering in person, we had a family video call Friday evening, during which I baked these Oatmeal Raisin Muffins as though we were all together in person.
I pretended like I was on a cooking show, my nieces and nephews were crawling all over my brother and sister-in-law, my other brother who lives in Hawaii was making us jealous by eating poke in front of us…all great things.
Regardless of where we all stand, I want to take the opportunity to acknowledge all the mothers out there. You are appreciated and loved. My heart and warmest wishes go out to you and your family.
I figured we could all use a fluffy, familiar muffin recipe to share with our loved ones now or later. These gluten-free oatmeal raisin muffins are so speedy quick to throw together, as you simply add all of the ingredients to a blender. It is entirely flourless, using blended rolled oats as the flour.
It is also dairy-free and refined sugar-free – a WIN for those of us who love a fluffy sweet treat but try to keep it on the healthier end of the spectrum.
