Maple Oatmeal Muffins with Raisins, Dates, and Walnuts

My family likes a portable breakfast.  These muffins are great right out of the oven or later, warmed in the microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds.  It’s a filling muffin that sticks with you and keeps you going.

1½ cups oatmeal
1½ cups white flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400°.  In large bowl, stir together oatmeal, white flour, wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  In another bowl, whip together butter, eggs, maple syrup, and buttermilk.  Add all at once to dry ingredients and mix by hand just until combined.  Fold in raisins, dates, and nuts.  Makes 12 large muffins, fill to top of muffin cup.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.
