Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

 I loooove recipes that are easy and taste great the first time around. These were just that, and my husband and I loved how they turned out. 

Recipe taken from

  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 cups buttermilk 
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or oil
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour 
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
In a bowl, soak the oats in buttermilk for 15 minutes.  Stir in eggs, sugars, and butter (or oil).  In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Stir into oat mixture just until moistened. (don't over mix)  Fill paper lined muffin cups 1/2 to 3/4 full.  Bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.

I used all white whole wheat flour instead of half white/half wheat, and they were great. I also used the substitution for buttermilk of adding lemon juice to the milk.
