Reviews for Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins
"It seems to me there is too much buttermilk in these muffins relative to the amount of flour. I have a very similar recipe that uses 1/2 cup buttermilk but is otherwise the same. I would also add some spicing to make these more interesting. Cinnamon, nutmeg and some walnuts perhaps too. My recipe also has a teaspoon of jam on top of each muffin which is added before baking."
"These were not sweet at all - but I actually liked that."
"I made a batch of these for my husband. He declared them moist and very tasty. They freeze well."
"These were soooooooo good! I added nutmeg and vanilla for a delicious taste. I'm excited to try these using egg nog instead of buttermilk."
"I just made these with my toddler for breakfast. I blended all of the suggestions in the comments, swapped 1/4 c ap flour for whole wheat flour, replaced the oil with applesauce,added chia seeds, added a bit of vanilla to the wet ingredients, added cinnamon and nutmeg to the dry ingredients,and topped each muffin with a little raw sugar, oats and cinnamon mixed. Delicious! I'm sure they would have been just as good following the recipe as is, I just figured I would make them as 'healthy' as possible since my son was helping me. This recipe is a keeper, I'm sure you could add anything you want to these; nuts,berries,pumpkin puree, even chocolate chips! The sky is the limit! Thanks for sharing!"
"Yummm! ATTEMPTING to be health, I substituted applesauce for the oil and added some chia seeds to the batter at the very end. they turned out great! :)"
"These are very good muffins. I add vanilla to the batter and cinnamon and nutmeg to the dry ingredients. I think that the nutmeg is incredible in these. They are not too sweet, just perfect. My daughter really likes these and she doesn't often eat muffins. Thanks!"
"Excellent, yummy recipe. I added a few dried oats and raw sugar to tops before putting in the oven. They're great."
"I've made these several times & the kids like them as much as the adults."
