Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

"THESE delicious muffins were a significant part of the first dinner I had with my wife when we were courting. She's an excellent cook, and that first meal was truly a gourmet's delight. Now whenever she plans a menu and asks for my suggestions, I make sure these muffins are on it. -Robert Luebke, Appleton, Wisconsin"

Yum! Really moist! I used melted butter instead of oil, added 1 apple, shredded, and cinamon/nutmeg, 1 tsp/ 1/2tsp respectively. And 1/4 cup of bran.

This has become my all-time favorite muffin recipe! I got it from my dad, and was going to add it, but it's already here. I always double the recipe, and I add 1 T. of vanilla (1/2 to the regu...

My mom actually has been making these muffins for years with the exact same recipe. It is one of my favorite foods ever! I highly recommend these muffins for a special (or everyday) breakfast, o...

We had them straight out of the oven this morning for breakfast, but I can see how they could be served with dinner as well. The sweetness is subtle, and although they're lovely just as they are...
