Honey+Oat Muffins

It’s been a very busy week at Casa Weekly Bite. After cleaning out most of the house, I hesitantly started cleaning out our kitchen cabinets. Even though I promised myself I wouldn’t do any baking until San Diego,Β I spotted a lonely half empty bag of whole wheat pastry flour that I just couldn’t bring myself to throw out.

Here’s how I rationalized my desire to bake:

  1. Muffins are a great, easy grab-n-go breakfast food. (Perfect when you’re trying to pack up a house)
  2. I didn’t want to waste my precious whole wheat pastry flour. Plus I had just enough oats to complete this recipe.
  3. I’m banned from doing any sort of heavy lifting, so baking just make sense πŸ˜‰

It didn’t take long to convince myself that baking was a no brainer. These muffins came out perfect & the honey flavor is irresistible!

Honey Oat Muffins adapted from Food & Wine Magazine

  • 3/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with cupcake liners, or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine, oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl combine honey, buttermilk, canola oil, and eggs. Combine the wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups filling only 3/4 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Let muffins cool in pan for about 5 minutes then transfer onto cooling rack. Muffins will last about 3 days in airtight container.

These muffins are perfect served warm with a little honey squeezed on top!

    These muffins sound terrific! Definitely a good distraction from not being able to do any major packing:-)

    Hi Estela! Those muffins look delicious! I am not sure if you remember me, but we met at Kath’s blogger meetup a little while ago. I am a teenage girl and have just started my own blog! If you get a chance to check it out, that would be wonderful and I would be so honored! Thank you for being an inspiration for me to start a blog! -Lauren
