1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup sour milk*
1 cup whole white wheat flour
3/4 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted
You can also add a cup of fruit, such as blueberries.
The muffins above are blueberry.
*To sour milk, put 1 tablespoon white vinegar in a one cup measuring cup. Add enough milk to fill the cup. Let sit 5 minutes, then combine the oats and the milk. Let this mixture soak while you combine the dry ingredients and melt the butter. Stir the beaten egg and butter into the oat mixture. Then add the dry ingredients all at once and stir just until moistened. Fold in the fruit.
Fill well greased muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Makes 1 dozen. You can double, triple, quadruple the recipe just fine, we do it all the time.
I use less butter when multiplying the recipe.
Other fruits we have tried adding are chopped peaches, apples, rhubarb, mashed banana, raspberries, blackberries, fruit cocktail, etc. Be creative!
