Brown Sugar Oat Muffins

We are huge muffin fans in this house, but my guys tend to like the same variety over and over again. I marked this recipe for Brown Sugar Oat Muffins to try back when my husband went through a brief phase of wanting to eat oatmeal from scratch, and had bought 2 giant canisters of oats.  They've been complaining about the lack of baked goods in the house, so I pulled out the recipe this weekend.

Just a few minor changes to this one.  I used whole milk instead of 2%, it's what we had on hand this week.  I used caramel extract instead of vanilla. I scooped the first 6 muffins, and then I added blueberries from our bushes to the second half of the batter.  I got 10 muffins, but I fill the cup the whole way instead of 2/3rds.

Mine did take about 3 or 4 minutes longer to bake due to them being more full.  No big deal.  I taste-tested half of each kind, with blueberries and without.  Both were awesome. I really think you could add any fruit you like, or even mini chocolate chips. It made for a perfect breakfast out on the patio. Thank you so much to Regina S. for sharing her recipe!

Brown Sugar Oat Muffins
Ingredients
 1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup 2% milk (used whole)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (used caramel extract)
In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened.

      1. I had to do something with them, they were taking up valuable cabinet space when hubby abandoned his "eat healthier" phase :)

      1. I'm very lucky! My grandmother had almost 150 bushes, my dad took 14 to his house when they built it. He gave me 4 of those for our new home this spring :) Small yield this year, but still pretty awesome to walk in my yard and pick a handful!

    4. "blueberries from our bushes..." she casually says. Jealous!! These sound yummy and a great way to use up some of that oatmeal overstock.

      1. I know it will sound totally greedy, but I wish I had enough to make a whole batch of muffins or a pie LOL But in reality, we moved them at an iffy time, so I'm just happy for what I'm getting :)
