Strawberry Oat Muffins

There is definitely not a dearth of great muffin recipes out in the world. I've made quite a lot of spectacular muffins, and I keep coming up with more combination ideas. I especially like these because of the nice oat-ey texture and the nice moistness that the buttermilk provides. If you have some strawberries sitting around this spring, give these delightful muffins a try.

Start by pouring the oats into a small bowl, and then covering them with buttermilk.

Let the oat mixture sit for about 5 minutes. While you wait, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set this aside for later. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil, eggs, vanilla and brown sugar

and beat with a mixer until well combined.

Add in the oats mixture

and blend just until combined.

Gradually add the flour mixture and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Then fold in the strawberries.

Spoon the batter into paper-lined muffin cups and then bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

You can serve these warm or at room temperature. What a great way to start the day!
