3 4 11 Not bad, but not great. I changed the directions & it made them (look) less oaty (can hide them from the kids). It' sneaky, but it works! :D
I let the oats & the milk soak for about an hour - till soft. Once they're soft, they disappear in the muffin. Subbed brown sugar for white & 1/4c whole wheat flour for 1/4c white flour. To help with the denseness, I added a half teaspoon baking soda. They could still be a bit lighter, but I wouldn't call them dense with the half teaspoon. I'm not a big nutmeg fan so I changed spices to: 1/2t cinnamon, 1/8t nutmeg & 1/8t allspice. The sweet potato (yeah, I subbed for pumpkin) & spice taste was soooo subtle. I truly could barely even taste the sweet potato & the spices, not at all. Not wanting a spice muffin, I would still at least do the spices half as much more, or even double. The flavor was provided by the blueberries. I added at least a cup.
End comments (haha): A good for you muffin, but I think I'd rather have blueberry-oat muffins or pumpkin/sweet potato-oat muffins instead.
