National Oatmeal Muffin Day
annually on December 19th
National Oatmeal Muffin Day celebrates the oatmeal variety of muffins. Muffins are usually served for breakfast or with dinner, and are usually made with flour, yeast or baking powder, and sugar. The primary ingredient in the muffins celebrated today is oatmeal. Oatmeal muffins also many times have raisins, chocolate chips, or nuts added to them. Quickbread muffins or American muffins are shaped similar to cupcakes, in contrast to the flat shaped English muffins. Muffins can be both sweet and savory, and the quickbread variety first began appearing in American cookbooks in the mid nineteenth century.
