Recipe by A Messy Cook
These are extremely good! It's a really unique and healthy combination of grains, and the flavor is great...wholesome, hearty, and lightly sweet. The muffins are so simple to make, and they stay soft and tender even after they've cooled. The poppyseeds add an attractive "speckled" appearance and a little crunch, which contrasts nicely with the chewy oats. Do try these muffins; I'm sure you will like them!!

Directions See How It's Made
- Stir together dry ingredients in large bowl.
- Make a well and add wet ingredients; stir gently just until combined.
- Let batter sit 20 minutes (you can skip this step if you're pressed for time, but it makes the muffins rise higher and look more attractive).
- Divide batter between 20 greased muffin cups; bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, until they test done.
- Remove muffins from pan and cool on rack.
