  • Preheat the oven to 400F; line a muffin tray with paper liners.
  • Whisk together the ground flaxseed and warm water in a large bowl and let it sit until thickened, about 5 minutes. Beat in the oil, milk, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, and mahlab until combined, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in the raisins.
  • Spoon the batter into the lined muffin tray and bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a couple crumbs, about 20 minutes.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack before glazing.
  • Once the muffins are cool, whisk together all ingredients for the glaze. Drizzle the glaze on top and let it set before serving.


  • To keep this recipe vegan, use a vegan cream cheese alternative instead of regular cream cheese.
