Serves: 12


  • 1 cup Cream of the West Roasted Ranch Oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 banana, mashed (1/2 cup pumpkin or applesauce may be substituted for banana)
  • 1 egg
  • cup brown sugar + 2 Tbsp for topping muffins (optional)
  • 1½ cups unbleached flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder


  1. Pour buttermilk over oats in a mixing bowl and let stand for 15-30 minutes. Add egg, oil, and brown sugar. Mix well. Add mashed banana.
  2. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to above mixture, blending just enough to absorb flour.
  3. Spoon into lined muffin cups. Sprinkle top of each muffin with a little brown sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Make 1 dozen average size muffins.
