Makes 12 muffins
Note about cook time: I checked my muffins after 14 minutes, and they were done. I've left the original cook time in the recipe (in case my oven was running too hot), but you may want to check them early.
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup mix-in of your choice, optional
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine oats, milk, and brown sugar. Let stand for 15 minutes. Stir in egg, oil, and mix-in.
2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir into oat mixture until just moistened.
3. Fill a greased muffin tin or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.
4. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 16-18 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
