Ingredients

1 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of all-purpose flour

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts, toasted

1/3 cup of raisins

1/3 cup of chopped dates

1 stick of butter , melted and cooled

1 cup of buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 large egg, beaten

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and grease a twelve-slot muffin tin or line the slots with paper baking cups. Mix together the rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, walnuts, dates, and raisins. In a separate bowl mix together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract, and butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and stir together. Be sure not to over-stir as that will cause the muffins to develop too many gluten bonds. It should be thick and gloppy. About 10 seconds of stirring should do; just enough to barely bring the ingredients together. Scoop into prepared muffin tray and bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the tray for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
