Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins


          The beautiful weather has finally decided to pay us a visit :) it's a welcome visit for sure. I'm about to head out with the family for a nice long walk but wanted to get these muffins posted.


           Muffins are of course a staple in our house. We grab them while on the go,with a cup of coffee,for snack,as a quick breakfast or just because..I enjoy the just because moments the most.

These muffins are really delicious. I added cinnamon to mine and I'm really glad I did. I went ahead and left one without anything in it to make sure my hunch was correct..and it was. If you don't add some sort of spice or some chocolate chips these guys are going to be slightly on the boring side. So add your spice of choice along with some chocolate chips..or leave the chips out..we did and loved them.

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

1-1/2 cups Quick Cooking Oats
1-1/2 cups Buttermilk
2 Eggs,beaten
3/4 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Vegetable or Canola Oil
1/2 cup Applesauce
2 tsp. Vanilla
1-1/2 cups All-purpose Flour ( I added half whole wheat)
1-1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
3/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon or spice of choice
1/2 tsp. Salt
Handful of chocolate chips;optional

Preheat oven to 400 or 200 celcius( I did 375 or 190 celcius instead). Grease a muffin tin with nonstick spray or line with muffin cups.

In a large bowl, soak oats in buttermilk for 15 minutes. Stir in eggs,sugar,oil,applesauce and vanilla.

In a medium bowl,whisk together the flour,baking powder, baking soda,cinnamon and salt; stir into oat mixture just until moitstened. Fill prepared muffin tin three-fourths full. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
