If there is one muffin recipe that I could make and eat over and over it would be this recipe for my Mom’s Oatmeal Muffins. In fact, I make a batch of these at least once a month, sometimes more. I first had these muffins when I was a kid and my Mom would make them for us, so they’re basically comfort food for me. Now I make them for my own family…family recipes really are the best.
This recipe is really uncomplicated and only takes a few minutes to assemble, which means that within about a half hour you can have a batch of fresh baked muffins ready to enjoy. Love that. But mostly I just really love how delicious they are…they’re tender, oat-y and so good!
These Oatmeal Muffins are perfect for lunch boxes and after school snacks. Or invite a friend over for coffee or a spice tea, and plate of homemade muffins. So good.
Mom's Oatmeal Muffins
- 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
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Combine the oats and buttermilk, and let sit for about 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, soda and baking powder.
In another bowl combine the oil, egg and brown sugar. Then add this to the oat mix.
Then combine the oat mix with the flour mix.
Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
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.
Bake 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.
