About this recipe: Made with oats, treacle, apple sauce and peaches - these muffins are moist and delicious.
I've made muffins with oats before--what I did was mix the buttermilk with the oats together and let it sit for 10 minutes before adding in the rest of the wet ingredients. THEN, I folded in the dry ingredients and the peaches. I baked my muffins in a 350* oven for 20 minutes--I got 12 biggish muffins out of one recipe. These muffins were so. freaking. good. Even my husband called me from work and told me how much he liked them. Between him and the kids, they ate 9 muffins this morning. This recipe's a keeper. - 14 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe has been from revised to include only 1/3 cup applesauce in the ingredient list, and to include the molasses and baking soda in the directions. - The Staff - 13 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Overall, these are probably 4 stars, but I would rate them 5 if you're looking for a healthy alternative (not too) sweet treat for toddlers. I halved the recipe and made 30 mini muffins instead of regular muffins and made the recipe as stated except added the cinnamon to the batter instead of doing a cinnamon/sugar topping. (Omitted the white sugar altogether.) I used baby applesauce for a smooth texture. Mini muffins at 400 in a nonstick mini muffin pan were cooked in about 8 1/2 minutes. Next time, I would add about 1/4 tsp. salt. I did not find these muffins to be overly dense--mine were spongey and pretty light. I diced the peaches very fine (again, for my 1-year old) and I will freeze most of them for her to snack on later. - 29 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
