Heart-healthy oats give these mildly flavored muffins extra nutrients and provide binding action for those suffering from diarrhea. Soaking the oats in buttermilk helps soften them. For added flavor, increase the amount of cinnamon used.
These muffins freeze well. Use just what you need and freeze the other muffins, defrosting one when you want something a little sweet.
With a few additions, these muffins are also a good option if you are experiencing constipation. Just add dried fruit, a chopped apple or pear, or nuts for additional fiber.
