This recipe is for the lovely Jenniffer, but anybody is welcome to it!
They are super moist and yummy!

Spiced Oat and Currant Muffins

1 c oats
1 1/2 c buttermilk
1/2 c dried currants

1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t allspice

In a small bowl, let the oats, currants and buttermilk soak
for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, whisk all the dry ingredients
in a separate bowl and melt the butter in the microwave.

Beat eggs and add with the vanilla to the oats. Stir the wet and

adding the melted butter at the very end.

Sprinkle with additional oats.
Bake 16-20 minutes at 400F degrees.
Toothpick test.
