Leftover Oatmeal Muffins

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

¾ c milk

1 egg

2 T melted butter

2 T real maple syrup (or honey)

1 ½ c whole wheat pastry flour (if using freshly ground flour pack the cups slightly with flour)

1 ½ T baking powder

½ 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 ¾ full. 


Bake at 400 for 20 to 25 minutes. 


Goes great with soup!
