2 large eggs
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
1 unpeeled medium apple, grated
1⅔ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
Optional flavor additions: 1 cup fresh berries; ⅔ cup dried fruit, ½ cup chopped nuts
In a large bowl, combine buttermilk, oats, eggs, sugar and optional flavor additions.
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Sift.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 12 muffin tin or use muffin liners. Fold dry sifted ingredients gently into wet ingredients until just combined.
