With Kansas being one of the top wheat-producing states, it seems only fitting to share a recipe containing whole wheat flour. These are great muffins to have for breakfast or a late night snack with a cup of hot cocoa. —Regina Stock, Topeka, Kansas

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Peanut butter and honey, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Mix first 6 ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Add to oat mixture; stir just until moistened.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 15-17 minutes.
  3. Cool 5 minutes before removing muffins to a wire rack. Serve warm. If desired, spread with peanut butter and honey.
