Oat dinner muffins

Oat Dinner Muffins
one of my favorite new muffins ,to have with my soup's and stew's
enjoy eveeryone..have a great week.Cilla :)

1 cup white flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/4 cup sugar (though, I think I will use a bit less next time)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup milk
Spray muffin pan or line with paper baking cups.
Preheat oven to 400.
In medium bowl, combine flour, oats, flax seed meal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture.
In another bowl, combine egg and milk.
Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir until just moistened (batter should be lumpy).
Spoon batter into muffin pan. I used a 1/4 measuring cup and it only made 8 muffins vs. the 12 the original recipe stated it would yield.
Sprinkle dry rolled oats on the top of muffin batter.
Bake in 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted in centers come out clean.
