I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Tender Oatmeal Muffins

This morning I was craving an oatmeal muffin. No chocolate chips or dried fruit or chopped nuts. Just a plain old soft and tender oatmeal muffin. Craving satisfied! 

1 1/2 cups traditional oats
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice)
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable or coconut oil
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Add the oats to the milk and let sit to hydrate the oats.
Line a muffin tin with papers. These muffins release very well from the papers. I've had other that stick a bit, but these come off perfectly!
Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together then add the brown sugar.
Add the oil, egg and vanilla to the oats mixture then stir in the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. Don't beat the batter or you won't end up with tender muffins.

Fill the papers 3/4 full using a scoop. The batter will be quite thick. Bake at 350°F for 20-22 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Enjoy plain or with a little butter.
Makes 15 medium sized muffins.
