Buttermilk Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

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.

Yum!
