Jeanne’s Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

These Oatmeal Raisin Muffins are so moist and make the perfect breakfast. They are filled with raisins, coconut, walnuts, and so much more. From the collection of Ethel Eynard, my grandmother.  I can always remember how much she enjoyed raisins, and how much I did not 😉  Jefferson City, MO.  1975.
