Day 3 of Oatmeal Week, and we have Whole Wheat Oatmeal Buttermilk Muffins, these can be good for breakfast, or an afternoon snack. They were quite easy to make, and when they were baking, it smelled like oatmeal goodness! I didn't make these until after lunch so the kids had this for an afternoon snack, and they really liked them.
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup buttermilk *2tsp vinegar and fat free milk
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Set oven to 400
Combine the oatmeal and buttermilk, let it stand for a few minutes, for the oatmeal to absorb some of the buttermilk. Add the egg, brown sugar and applesauce. Beat very well, add the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Mix well, do not over beat. Grease muffin pan, or use muffin liners and fill 1/2 way. *If you like, put some oatmeal right on top of the mixture so they have a crunchy top. Bake for 20 minutes.
