Oatmeal Muffins

READY IN: 1hr 33mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

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.

My family really enjoyed these! I used old fashioned oats and soaked them about 20min. I also added a dash of cinnamon and vanilla. I can see that these would be very versatile muffins. I can't wait to try them with a little carrot added.
