I was looking for a good way this morning to use up some leftover oatmeal that I had made for breakfast.. these muffins were just the thing! The kids are eating them up right now along with the leftover soup from last nights dinner...
1 cup leftover, cooked oatmeal
Â¾ c milk
2 T melted butter
2 T real maple syrup (or honey)
1 Â½ c whole wheat pastry flour (if using freshly ground flour pack the cups slightly with flour)
1 Â½ T baking powder
Â½ t salt
In a small bowl combine leftover oatmeal and milk; using a wire whisk if needed so there are no clumps of oatmeal. Add egg and mix well. Add melted butter and maple syrup (or honey) and mix well.
In a large bowl combine ww pastry flour, baking powder and salt.
Add milk/oatmeal mixture and mix until combined being careful not to over mix.
Divide batter in a muffin pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray. Fill the muffin cups Â¾ full.
Bake at 400 for 20 to 25 minutes.
Goes great with soup!
