1 cup oatmeal 1 cup buttermilk 1/3 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon cardamom 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar mixture

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin tins. Choose either regular or mini muffin tins.

In a small bowl combine oatmeal and buttermilk. Set aside. In a medium bowl beat butter and sugar together. Add egg and beat well. Stir in the oatmeal and milk. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt, cardamom, and cinnamon. Mix well. Add flour and stir just until well mixed. (Vigorous stirring make tough muffins.).
