Eggnog is still in, right? Or am I two weeks too late? Even so. I’m celebrating Christmas today so Eggnog is totally in!

We are going to dive into these Oatmeal Eggnog Muffins in a couple of hours. After that we are going to take an eating-break, and later we will stuff our faces with everything under the sun. I have the slow cooker on, two ovens, three stove top burners… everything and everyone is working overtime today. As they should.

It’s going to be a fun day with family and friends and I am really looking forward to it. If you need me, I will either be in the kitchen, or at the table satisfying my inner fat kid.

That’s why I made these muffins sort of healthy. Balance is the key to my game. 😉

On a side note – I wonder if adding oats to a cheeseburger patty (beef and all), would define that cheeseburger as a healthy cheeseburger. Hmmm…


These Eggnog Muffins are really, really good. I was kind of surprised because I am not a fan of Eggnog, but Eggnog in muffins is a great idea! They are a bit spicy, they are also very sweet, and they smell wonderfully. Serve these with a side of milk and enjoy!

Now I’m going to go back into that kitchen and see what else I need to taste… 🙂

To those celebrating today, Merry Christmas! Christ is Born!

Честит Божик! Христос се Роди!

    What would make a good substitute for egg nog if I’d like to try these now – not ‘tis the season quite yet!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Yep, not the season just yet, but this recipe makes great muffins and you can just use some milk in place of eggnog. 🙂

  2. Jennifer

    Really great recipe! They rose perfectly and the flavour is really satisfying. Perfect sweetness. What a wonderful way to use up eggnog before it goes bad! I didn’t have rum extract, so I went without – – would love to try it with, though!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      So the rum will give it that classic (“alcoholic”) eggnog taste and you can find that in the aisle where you get vanilla extract. If you don’t want to use it, then just go ahead and use vanilla extract.

  3. Martha

    These look tasty. Please advise: quick oats, minute oats, or regular oats? I don’t want them to be too chewy! Thanks.

    1. Katerina Petrovska


      Yes, you need the regular rolled oats. They are also called “old fashioned rolled oats”. 🙂

  4. Anie

    Great muffins. For extra fibres, I used whole wheat flour and a few tablespoons more eggnog as well as flax eggs instead of eggs. Don’t skip the soaking of the oats. I ended up letting the mixture of oats + oil and sugar soaking another 20 min because I was interrupted and the mixture was light and fluffy. A Holiday keeper!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Maria!! Happy to know that you enjoyed them! Thank you! That recipe is also very customizable and you can add/swap with whatever other ingredients you like.

  5. Suzanne

    Hi Katerina,
    I made these for my husband tonight with the rest of his eggnog and he loved them. I’m not an eggnog fan but he is so he was a happy camper. Cheers to you!

  6. Jean (Lemons & Anchovies)

    I don’t think I’ve ever had eggnog–crazy, right? 🙂 These muffins sound so good, though. So pretty, too! 🙂

  7. Valerie

    Merry Christmas, Kate! xo

    May I celebrate vicariously through you and feed my inner fat kid too? (She panics after the holidays which makes her even more hungry.)
    And yes, methinks oatmeal is the default healthy ingredient.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Your muffins look wonderful. Love the little crusty surface on top. 🙂

    We celebrated last month, but I stocked up on enough eggnog to last me till at least February. Love these muffins!
