This is another of Miss Maggie’s recipes that I have tweaked for a GF diet. The muffins are really yummy, and the oatmeal with soured milk lends a texture. The original recipe is here, but here is what I do.
Combine 1 1/4 c rolled oats/oatmeal with 1 c of milk and 1 TBL of plain white yogurt. Let sit for 20-30 minutes until the oatmeal absorbs some of the milk. Beat in 1 egg and 1/2 c (1/3 c if you like muffins less sweet), then beat in 1/4 c oil. In a separate bowl, combine 1 c GF flour with 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1 tsp baking powder. Add the flour to the oatmeal mixture and combine thoroughly.
Bake as muffins at 400 F/ 200 C / Gas Mark 6 for about 20 minutes. Variations include adding raisins, chopped apple and cinnamon, or 1/2 tsp of jam in the middle of each muffin before baking. These are great as snacks, especially for after school.
