Oatmeal Muffins

Oatmeal Muffins



Good Monday Morning!  Need a wonderful breakfast to get your week rolling?   Toasted oats give these Oatmeal Muffins a deep whole-grain flavor, yet they are still moist and tender- with just the right amount of sweet thanks to the crumb topping of oats, brown sugar, and pecans.  Sounds like a perfect breakfast on-the-go or a healthy afternoon snack!

Oatmeal Muffins


Ingredients

Topping
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup pecans, chopped fine (optional)
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Muffins
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus 6 tablespoons melted
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/3 cups packed light brown sugar
1 3/4 cups milk
2 large eggs, beaten

Instructions

FOR THE TOPPING:  Combine oats, flour, pecans, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl. Drizzle melted butter over mixture and stir to ­thoroughly combine; set aside.

FOR THE MUFFINS: Grease and flour 12-cup muffin tin (or use a baking spray with flour).  Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add oats and cook, stirring frequently, until oats turn golden brown and smell of cooking popcorn, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer oats to food processor and process into fine meal, about 30 seconds.  Add flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to oats and pulse until combined, about 3 pulses.Stir 6 tablespoons melted butter and sugar together in large bowl until smooth.  Add milk and eggs and whisk until smooth. Using whisk, gently fold half of oat mixture into wet ingredients, tapping whisk against side of bowl to release clumps.  Add remaining oat mixture and continue to fold with whisk until no streaks of flour remain.  Set aside batter for 20 minutes to thicken.

Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Using ice cream scoop or large spoon, divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups (about ½ cup batter per cup; cups will be filled to rim). Evenly sprinkle topping over muffins (about 2 tablespoons per muffin). Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 18 to 25 minutes, rotating muffin tin halfway through baking.Let muffins cool in muffin tin on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin tin and serve or let cool completely before serving.
