These are delicious muffins and very simple to make. I add good quality semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips if I want to spoil hungry kids. Sultana raisins are a very nice addition as well.
I love oatmeal. I eat cooked oatmeal almost every morning, and it is one food item that will always be in my pantry. Heart healthy, low sodium and a great way to start the day.
Pre-heat oven to 400 F
Line a muffin tin with paper liners
Ingredients & Method:
1 Cup of whole milk or buttermilk
1 Cup quick-cooking rolled oats
Mix together and let stand for about an hour.
1/2 Cup sunflower oil
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1 Teaspoon pure Vanilla extract
Mix together and add to the oat mixture
1 Cup unbleached flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
Sift together and add to above mixture. Stir gently until just blended. Do not over mix.
Fill muffin liners evenly throughout.
Bake at 400 F for about 18 minutes, depending on your oven. Check with sharp knife so that it comes out clean.
Add 1/2 Cup good quality chocolate chips, or sultana raisins, or chopped walnuts and dates.
I like to make mini muffins for healthy snacks. These are great for kid or grownup lunches too.
Line a mini muffin tin with mini paper liners. Bake for about 9 minutes. Voila! Mini muffins!
