This recipe is from ROBIN HOOD ( I think)…I have it on a torn out page from a magazine…& I am sure that this recipe is over 30 years old.. I remember making these muffins when my kids were little…which was a long time ago!
The recipe calls for buttermilk…which I never have in the house, so I buy buttermilk powder at Bulk Barn, keep it on hand all the time & then I just mix the powder with water according to the product directions & I am ready to go! I also use frozen blueberries for this recipe rather than fresh but you can of course use fresh if you prefer.
The recipe calls for melted butter or margarine, so I used oil instead for no particular reason other then it was simple to just use oil & I didn’t think the taste of the butter would have been necessary in these muffins…
The recipe says it makes 12 muffins & I only got 10…
Here is the recipe from ROBIN HOOD.. called BLUEBERRY OAT MUFFINS with the one change I made…
1 cup oats… I used quick oats
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup oil
1 cup blueberries… I used frozen, I rinsed off the ice that was on them from the package before adding them to the batter
Preheat oven to 400f
Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake papers or grease well… I greased the pan with cooking spray..just spraying well in each muffin cup
- Combine the oats & buttermilk in a bowl big enough to mix the batter in & let this sit this for a few minutes & mix it once in a while
- In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & brown sugar…I just used a fork to mix this together
- Next, I mixed the beaten egg with the oil then added this to the oat/buttermilk mixture.mix well
- Mix the dry ingredients with the oat mixture & stir just to combine
- Fold in the blueberries
- Divide batter between the prepared muffin cups
- Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-22 minutes until the muffins are brown & baked through
- Let them cool in the pan for a few minutes so the muffins don’t break apart when you remove them from the pan… then let them cool on a cooling rack before enjoying them!!!
