Mom’s Oatmeal Muffins

Well this week in our house has been interesting.  Not a good interesting.  My hubby got back from 5 days in Las Vegas and brought me back a very nice wallet.  And a very bad cold.  Thank you very much.  Then he spent the rest of the week in bed when at home.  Poor guy.

Then our baby got Roseola again and he’s so crabby charming when he’s sick.
Ahh.  The life of mothers!  😉

So that means comfort food all around.

This is a family recipe, from my Mom.
 I loved this muffin as a kid, and now my kids love it!  It’s a staple in this house!
Perfect for lunch boxes and after school snacks.

Save Recipe


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup flour (for extra nutrition, you can use 1/3 cup whole wheat flour and 2/3 cup white flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Combine the oats and buttermilk, and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, salt, soda and baking powder.
  3. In another bowl combine the oil, egg and brown sugar. Then add this to the oat mix.
  4. Then combine the oat mix with the flour mix.
  5. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  6. Scoop the batter evenly between 12 muffin cups for 12 large muffins, or you if you want smaller muffins, spread the batter between 16 muffin cups.
  7. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.


I like to cut back on the wheat flour, so I often make these muffins with 1/2 flour and 1/2 cup oat flour. They're a little more crumbly and not as big, but they're just as good in terms of flavour.


I will now eat one with a cup of lemon tea with lemon sugar!  Yeeuumm!
