Mrs. Wilma's Oat Muffins

Hearty Oat Muffins

Our dear family friend Mrs. Wilma is a lovely vivacious lady in her 80s.  She is the most glass-half-full kind of person I have ever met.  Her smile is infectious as is her laugh.

I love her muffins not only because I can feel smug about eating them and how good for me they are, but also because this recipe actually employs my "dump" method of cooking.

Mrs. Wilma's Oat Muffins

1 c. Old Fashioned Oats (NOT quick cooking oats)
1 c. Buttermilk
1 c. Flour (I usually use 1/2 whole wheat & 1/2 ap flour)
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
3/4 c. Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 c. Butter (cut into cubes)

Mix the oats and buttermilk and leave overnight on the counter (don't freak out).
In the morning, mix all of the remaining ingredients together with the oat mixture.
Add your choice of 1 cup of the following or mix and match:  raisins, fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips.
Bake 15 minutes at 400F.

This recipe can be doubled, tripled, or gangoozled* and they still work.

*I may have made up the word gangoozled.

This is part of Full Plate Thursday.
