These are wonderful muffins, quick and easy. I added cinnamon and vanilla, and threw in some blueberries I needed to use up. Moist and flavourful

These are the breakfast muffin I've been dreaming of. So simple, yet so delicious! I have a few suggestions, however. First, I added 1 tsp. of vanilla and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract to add some dimension. Also, I sprinkled the tops with turbinado sugar before baking. These are even awesome the next day--toast them up and slather with butter. So so good.

This is the best oatmeal muffin recipe I've tried! I love oatmeal, but sometimes I just want a muffin, ya know? I've tried multiple recipes, but they've all been so dry. I don't know if it's the amount of buttermilk, or what, but these were so moist and delicious! I confess, I did add 1/3 cup of raisins and 1 tablespoon of vanilla protein powder, but I figured since some had said they were not overly sweet, they could take the additions--I loved them so much I made a second batch right away--this time replacing 1/3 cup of the flour with cocoa powder and adding chocolate chips (figure I'll have a better chance of my kids eating them). They're in the oven now, so we'll see, but I have high hopes. Thank you for such a good recipe!

Once again, someone left a medicore recipe, without even making it. I am here to say these are excellent!! Certainly a keeper. I confess, I did not have quick oats, so I soaked old fashioned oats a few min longer. I got 11 big muffins. Not too sweet, wondereful hot from the oven. You could add a small bit of chopped dates or raisens. They were light airy texture. I will be making more

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!

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!
