Tammy's Review: 

These muffins are delicious! They're not too sweet, but the flavor reminds me of an oatmeal cake or coffee cake. The muffins make a quick snack or breakfast item, or go well in sack lunches. They're very easy to make! My rating: 9/10

Tammy's review is spot on. I do seem to get more per batch-18 count. I use a #20 scoop on my muffins. When I made a second batch to use up the buttermilk before it had to be tossed, I added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla. These additions are good also. My husband loves taking muffins in his lunch to snack on during the day. Way better than the vending machine!!

These are delicious; just the right amount of sweetness. I made them without the raisins and didn't feel that anything was missing! The only problem is that they are very soft, almost difficult to get out of the pan/muffin liners.

Easy, healthy, basic, and delicious! My sister and I just made some and will definitely make more again. I love it that all of the ingredients, except for the buttermilk, are things that I pretty much always have on hand!
We added ~1/2 t cinnamon and used whole rolled oats since they're healthier than quick oats. Plus we didn't have buttermilk on hand, so we added some lemon juice to some half-and-half we were looking to use up.
A little on the buttery side- delicious, but might substitute some applesauce next time.
Great with apple butter, preserves of any kind, or cream cheese icing!

I really like these. They have less sugar them most muffins, and are still delicious! I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and 1/2 cup white flour, and they were still light and moist. Easy and healthy!

This is fabulous. I love the texture! I had to leave the raisins out, kids and daddy do not eat them. I added a little bit of cinnamon which I thought made them even better.

I used this recipe at least 4 times this month. The first time, I was too sleepy in the midnight( ususally it's my baking fun time), I doubled all the ingredients but miseed one stick of the butter. But muffins turned out very fine. I served them for 20 parents in my son's graduation party. The second time I used vegetable oil insteaded of the butter. It's a little dry and not rich enough. The third time I tried the whole wheat flour instead of the regular flour, turns out perfect! The fouth time I used the almond flour instead of the regular flour. It's a totally tragedy. The muffins had to eaten in the cake pan. I smashed one muffin to my 3 years old boy as his snack this morning. He was okay with that anyway. I guess this recipe will be my year around breakfast recipe. Thank you, Tammy!
