Buttermilk oatmeal muffins are a filling way to start the day! These have a warm comforting flavor and are not overly sweet.
I make breakfast nearly every morning during the school year so I make a lot of muffins. I found this recipe years ago, but I’m not sure where. Anyway, these buttermilk oatmeal muffins are a family favorite. They are not overly sweet, but they have a comforting, eating something warm on a cold morning quality to them. They are fantastic warm and slathered in butter.
The first step to these muffins is to stir together 1 cup of quick oatmeal and 1 cup of buttermilk. Let that stand for 30 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. This is important so don’t skip this step. During the half hour the oatmeal will absorb the buttermilk and become softer. During this half hour I preheat the oven, line my muffin tin with liners and measure out and set aside the remaining ingredients.
Stir the brown sugar into the oatmeal and buttermilk. Make sure it is mixed well and no clumps of brown sugar remain. Then stir in the canola oil and egg.
Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour. Mix just until combined.
Divide the batter among 12 muffin cups. As you can see the muffin cups are pretty full. These muffins do not rise super rise so don’t worry. Bake them at 350 for about 15 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean.
