Delicious Oatmeal Muffins

I got this recipe for Oatmeal Muffin from a friend many years ago and I have been making these muffins ever since. Oatmeal muffins, seems pretty simple and nothing noteworthy right? But try making these muffins once and you will be hooked for life, I know I am! This muffins are so tasty; they're soft, moist oatmeal muffins with a hint of  buttermilk and brown sugary sweetness. They make the perfect breakfast muffins, it's like having a bowl of oatmeal on the run. There are many variations possible when making these muffins, I have tried making them with blueberries, chopped dates, walnuts, shredded carrots and all kinds of different spices. 

This time I tried apple and cinnamon, a classic flavour mix that didn't disappoint!  I don't know which is my favorite variations because they are all so good :) Next time you need a good muffins recipe, that's quick and easy to make, try making these Oatmeal Muffins. Be brave, go ahead and add your favorite berries, nuts or spices. Be creative and come up with something that your family members will love. Feel free to share some of your creative variation with me too, I'd love to try them out!

You can make the muffins larger if you like but I chose to make them medium size because then each muffins is only 195 calories, add a piece of fruit and coffee or tea and breakfast is served. You can substitute half the oil for applesauce for an even lighter version of these muffins:)
