First, the basic recipe comes from SimpleBites.net. I found the recipe and the blog via Pinterest.
|you can see an apple chunk, butterscotch chips and a hint of a toasted walnut piece.|
Aimee gives a basic oatmeal muffin recipe and then a list of stir-ins. So really, if you have this recipe, you could make endless combinations of muffins and you may not need another muffin recipe! She also gives many tips regarding muffin making, so you should head over to her blog for the recipe.
|we didn't bother to peel the apples. more nutrition that way.|
The strangest thing about the recipe is that you soak oats in buttermilk for an hour before you begin. But the muffins had great flavor and crumb, and I actually had buttermilk in my refrigerator that needed to be used up. Since we always have oats around in bulk (mostly for granola), we will probably be making these muffins again in the future.
|although muffin liners are recommended, I didn't use any. I just sprayed our pan well.|
Our add-ins were 1/2c butterscotch chips, 1 large gala apple (diced), and 1/4c toasted walnuts. We can't wait to eat these out of our freezer in the next few weeks!
|our reheat plan: to pop a frozen muffin in the toaster oven until heated through. delicious!|
