A moist, very tender muffin that we all enjoy. I eat mine plain but they are also good with butter or jam. It is surprising how tasty they are without any spices, flavorings or zest but the buttermilk and oats really give this muffin its flavor. Please note that the oats need to soak for 1 hour before preparing the muffins so I've included that in the prep time.
