The Secret To The Best Oatmeal Muffins

The Soulfull Project is The Secret To The Best Oatmeal Muffins

Whether you choose the basic recipe, the maple brown sugar recipe, or the vegan recipe, you can make your oatmeal muffins even more flavorful and healthy just by substituting hot cereal in the mix.

Hot cereal contains oatmeal — so they’ll still be oatmeal muffins — but you’ll also get other hearty grains, including:

  • Rye
  • Quinoa
  • Flax
  • Chia
  • Barley

Mixing up a batch of oatmeal muffins that include hot cereal is an easy way to pack even more vitamins and minerals into an already healthy treat.

Plus, with The Soulfull Project’s hot cereals — including Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry Almond, Brown Sugar Pecan, Cinnamon Spice, and Toasted Coconut — you can add delicious flavor to any recipe that calls for oatmeal.

Concerned about food allergies? Many of our hot cereals and crispy granolas are vegan-friendly and gluten-free. But if nuts are an issue, try our Don’t Go Nuts soy spreads and chewy granola bars.

Either way, you get a tasty and vitamin-packed treat that does your body good.

If that weren’t incentive enough, you’ll also be helping out those in need in your community. For every serving you purchase, The Soulfull Project will donate a serving of our hot cereal to a food bank in your area.

We’re making a better world, one serving at a time. You can help!
