Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

When it comes to breakfast, I'm a muffin kind of girl. I love just about all breakfast type foods, but muffins are at the top of my list of favorites. I decided today I wanted to bake some muffins to have for a quick breakfast this week. I knew I wanted to make something with oats, but wasn't sure what kind I wanted to bake. I finally came across this recipe and decided to go with it. It turned out very good! Not too sweet and very moist. Perfect for a breakfast muffin. I think this will be a keeper for me as far as basic muffin recipes go. It's a very versatile recipe. Other things I think would be good for add ins are chopped apples, cranberries, chopped pecans, bananas, or chocolate chips. I can't wait to have one in the morning with my coffee!

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk (I used 1 cup whole milk with 1 tsp lemon juice mixed in)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
* I also added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.

In a bowl, soak oats in buttermilk for 15 minutes. Stir in egg, sugar and oil (and vanilla). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and sal, (and cinnamon); stir into oat mixture just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 16-18 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
