Muffins with an orangey taste, perfect for a light breakfast or snack.
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
Stir the oats, flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and raisins together in a bowl; set aside. Beat the egg in a bowl along with the orange zest and canola oil. Whisk in the milk and stir in the flour until just mixed. Evenly divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Remove the muffins from the oven. Stir the orange juice together with 1 tablespoon sugar until the sugar dissolves. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of this mixture over each muffin, remove from the muffin tin, and allow to cool slightly before serving.

The quality of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
