Cold out, around -10C without the wind effect, sunny Sunday screaming for a lazy morning to get the day started: fresh coffee and steaming hot Oatmeal French Muffins with butter. Don’t think I need to write anything else. They fill the bill for moist, healthy and carb conscious. Gotta go eat them!
Oatmeal French Breakfast Muffins
The original recipe is here.
1 cup oats
1/2 cup buttermilk + 1/2 cup regular milk
1/2 cup brown sugar (I used 1/4 Splenda and 1/4 brown sugar)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 cup whole wheat (all purpose works too)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, raisins, apples, cranberries, or other add-in of your choice (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the oats and milk/buttermilk and stir. Let them soak together a little bit while you get the other ingredients out. Melt the stick of butter or margarine in the microwave.
Next, add the brown sugar, egg, vanilla and melted butter to the bowl and stir. When it’s combined, add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon, stirring gently.
Fold into 12 greased or lined muffin cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Enjoy and share!
