Oatmeal Buttermilk Muffins

One of my favorite ingredients is buttermilk. Whatever I make with it has a tender texture and tangy taste. These wonderful muffins are no exception.

Oatmeal Buttermilk Muffins
Makes 16 muffins
Preheat oven to 400 degrees

1.5 C buttermilk
1.5 C rolled oats
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 C canola oil
1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
1.5 C all purpose flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 C raisins

Spray muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray or line with muffin liners.

In large bowl, soak oats and raisins in the buttermilk for 15 minutes. Stir in eggs, sugar, oil, applesauce, and vanilla.

In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add to oats mixture and stir just until moistened.

Fill prepared muffin tins until cups are three-fourths full. Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
