We have a new favorite snack around here.
Buttermilk Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
They are pretty darn tasty.
We have been doing a lot with oatmeal lately. We have a lot of it, so I have been trying to use some of it up.
I can’t eat oatmeal without soaking it first and stumbled upon a recipe for soaking oats overnight in water and buttermilk. Then I stumbled across a muffin recipe. It was pretty basic and didn’t have a lot of flavor. I tweaked it a bit and everyone loves them. Well except for Munchkin. He ate one the first night and then wouldn’t touch them again. Oh well, his loss. ;p
I baked a double batch two nights ago and there are only five left. 🙂
I thought I would share the recipe.
Oatmeal Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Muffins
makes 12 muffins
1 cup oats
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup oil (I use coconut oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 – 2/3 cup chocolate chips (depending on your preference for chocolate)
-preheat oven to 400 and grease muffin tin
-mix oats and buttermilk in large bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and soak overnight.
-add in egg; mix well with mixer
-add sugar and mix well
-add other ingredients and mix well
-scoop by 1/4 cup into greased muffin tin
-bake in preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes (my oven works well with 18 minutes)
-let cool about 10 minutes and then pop out of tin. Let cool the rest of the way on cooling racks
Some other things I am considering are adding cinnamon or cocoa powder. Can’t wait to make the next batch! 🙂
