Whole Wheat Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffin Recipe

Today's Tidbit:  We all love muffins here (who doesn't?)  So of course I'm always thinking of ways to make them a tad bit healthier so I can feel less guilty giving them to my kids or eating them myself.  I recently came across a recipe that used two of my fav healthy ingredients:  Buttermilk and Oatmeal.  With just a few tweaks of my own a tasty and filling muffin resulted.  Yes, they were better topped with my fav spread Brummel n Brown, but they were also enjoyable plain.  The best part is that they are filling, making a good addition to your breakfast or as a snack!  Here is the recipe I used:

*Next time I make these I'm going to add in 1/2 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips for a little bit more fun and yum!


The Story of What Amy Ate Today:
*Last year I created the What Amy Ate Today blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds by making simple healthy changes to the way I was eating.  I wanted to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices looked like by simply posting every single thing that I ate every single day; which I did for 9 straight months!   

It all started on May 1, 2012, check it out a sample post here:  

One Day Last June....

I wanted to show that it is possible to lose weight and be healthy without being on a diet and without starving or depriving yourself of anything.  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   
It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!
