Oatmeal Muffins

These muffins, according to the people who've had them, are really good. I'll let you know as soon as I've tried one. One of the muffins (poor thing) got stuck to the tin and ripped. You definitely have to wiggle them to get them out. You get 12 muffins from this recipe.  [update: these are indeed moist, delicious muffins].

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (I used golden brown sugar)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/4 cup butter, melted (I used semi-salted)
butter for greasing the tins

you'll also need:
muffin tin
large bowl
medium bowl
mixing spoon
wire rack

1. preheat the oven to 400F and grease the muffin tins. In the small bowl, combine the oats and buttermilk, and stir together just to moisten. Let them stand. (I let mine stand a bit longer than I'd thought as there turned out to be brown sugar problems.)
2. in the large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until they're combined.
3. beat the egg and melted butter together a little, then add them to the bowl with the oats. Stir together to mix well.

4. make a well in the bowl with the flour mixture, then pour in the oats mixture. Stir them together, being careful not to overstir once they're been combined.
5. spoon the batter into the muffin tins until they're 3/4 full. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
6. when they're done, cool them in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove them to cool completely on the rack.
