Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

I'm always looking for good breakfast foods that are fairly quick & simple, since my kids want to eat when they get up.
And Andrew needs to get out the door.
We like this recipe, it's tasty, healthy & filling. They make great snacks as well!

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk (add 1 tbsp. of lemon juice to regular milk and let it sit for 5 minutes, if you don't have buttermilk on hand.)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (whole wheat flour also works)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a bowl, soak oats in buttermilk for 15 minutes. Stir in egg, sugar and apple sauce. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into oat mixture just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 16-18 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
