(adapted from Oat Applesauce Muffins at allrecipes.com)
1 c. rolled oats
1 c. buttermilk
1 c. flour (I used all-purpose, but whole wheat would be ideal)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Trader Joe's Chunky Spiced Apples (or regular applesauce)
1. Place oats in a small bowl, pour in buttermilk. Let sit for two hours at room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
3. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and brown sugar. Stir in oat/buttermilk mixture, spiced apples, and egg; mix well. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.
