No-Roll Biscuits and Oatmeal Muffins

I do a lot of baking to help cut down costs – and who doesn’t love fresh biscuits? But often they seem like just a bit too much work. Here are two easy recipes that do not require any rolling and you can have them mixed and in the oven in 5 minutes flat! Since these are just biscuits and not loaves, cooking time is around 1/3 of the time, which means that you are not heating up your house for long during these hotter summer months (I say hotter with a hint of sadness, as we have had below temperature weather, with no really “hot” weather yet :( )

No-Roll Biscuits

3 cups Flour
2 tbsp Sugar
5 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
½ cup Margarine

1 Egg
1 cup Milk

In your food processor mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add margarine.

Mix until crumbly.

Pour into a large bowl (repeat if making a double batch) and make a well in the middle (hole in the middle).
In a medium bowl mix together milk and egg(s) and pour into well. Stir lightly to mix, the batter will be sticky, if you are feeling like it is too dry, add a bit of milk, but do not kneed. Drop dough onto a cookie sheet in large clumps.

Bake at 450 F. Cooking time will vary depending on the size you made your biscuits, check at 10 minutes, but can take up to 18 minutes. You can tell they are done when the tops are golden brown.

No-Roll Cheese Biscuits

2 cups Flour
4 tsp Baking powder
¾ tsp Salt
1 cup Grated cheddar cheese

¾ cup Milk
1/3 cup Vegetable oil

Combine four, baking powder and cheese in a large bowl and stir to mix. Add milk and vegetable oil and stir to incorporate.
Drop dough onto a cookie sheet in large clumps.

Bake at 400 F for 35 – 40 minutes.

I grew up with a love of oatmeal (my mom has some Scottish roots) and although my mom never did a lot of baking, she did make oatmeal muffins. Sometimes she would leave them plain, or other times she would add raisins or chocolate chips (which of course was my sisters and my favorite). My kids have also grown up eating oatmeal muffins, and eating them takes me back to fun times when I was a kid.

Oatmeal Muffins

2 ½ cups Flour
2 cups Oats
½ cup Brown sugar
2 tbsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon

2 Eggs
2 tbsp Molasses
½ cup Vegetable oil
2 cups Milk (or 1 cup milk and 1 cup yogurt)
2 tsp Vanilla

1 ½ cups of raisins, nuts or chocolate chips (optional)

Mix together dry ingredients and make a well in the center.
Beat eggs till frothy, add remaining wet ingredients and mix well. Pour into well and stir only to moisten, batter will still be lumpy, which is fine.

Pour into greased muffin tins.

Bake at 400 F for 16 – 20 minutes. Makes 24 muffins.

I always freeze muffins so that my kids can have easy food to grab when they are in need of an easy and fast breakfast or a snack. Just place in the microwave for 20 seconds on a medium heat.

Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

This is a great variation of the above muffins, good if you have to use up some applesauce.

2 ½ cups Flour
2 cups Oats
½ cup Brown sugar
2 tbsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Cinnamon

2 Eggs
1 cup Applesauce
1 tbsp Molasses
½ cup Vegetable oil
1 cup Milk (or ½ cup milk and ½ cup yogurt)
2 tsp Vanilla or Maple

Topping: 1 tbsp EACH cinnamon and sugar

Mix together muffins as stated in the above recipe, just sprinkle the topping over the muffins before putting them into the oven.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

  23. Everything said made a ton of sense. But, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier title?

    I ain't suggesting your content isn't good., however what if you added a title to possibly
    get people's attention? I mean "No-Roll Biscuits and Oatmeal Muffins" is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news titles to get
    people to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested
    about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
