Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.


Muffins are such a fun treat, and I hardly ever make them. I know, crazy right?! They are the perfect breakfast accompaniment and they make a great dessert too! We have a lot of left over ingredients in our fridge from the holidays, and I really didn’t think I was getting through the extra buttermilk anytime soon. I decided to go ahead and make a muffin out of it. If you’ve never had a muffin made with buttermilk, I just have one question for you…WHY?! There is seriously no other way to eat them. They are the perfect addition/substitution to any muffin recipe. These buttermilk chocolate chip oatmeal muffins are just delicious and they pair well with a great brew too!

Yes, you can have beer with muffins. At least we say you can have beer with muffins, but we will get to that in a couple of minutes. So like I was saying, we have a ton of ingredients left over. I don’t know why I do this, but I have the tendency to over buy when I go to the grocery store. Maybe it’s that whole “my eyes are way bigger than my stomach” thing from when I was younger, but I never feel like I’m going to have enough. So here we are with a ton of buttermilk left over, yet not enough to make fried chicken with it…What to do, what to do??

Yes, you can pair muffins with beer.

Use your leftover ingredients!

Why we make muffins of course! These muffins are just delectable. Gooey and moist yet solid enough to be called a muffin and not a cupcake. They are so easy to make too. There is no excuse to not make these little guys. I do suggest however, REMEMBERING to put the chocolate chips in them (I bought a lot of chocolate chips too…for cookies…you know). I forgot to put the chocolate chips in the cookies and that is why in my recipe they are “optional.” Don’t forget them though because they are essential!

*Please Note* It does not take over 45 minutes to prep these muffins. They do have to sit inactive for about 30 minutes though, so allow enough time for that when you’re making them.

Don’t forget the chocolate chips!

Gooey and Moist!

We do suggest pairing these muffins with a beer, unless of course you are eating them at the break of dawn. Then you may want to reconsider, but hey whatever strikes your fancy! With oatmeal muffins, we suggest pairing them with none other than an oatmeal stout. If you live in the Fort Collins/Boulder area we suggest pairing it with Equinox Brewing’s Mr. Delicious Oatmeal Stout. The thing with this stout is that they don’t bottle it. Actually, I’ve only seen them bottle one, so if you want to pair with this beer, you will need to get a growler of it. If you do not live in the area, then Sam Smith’s Oatmeal Stout will certainly do the trick, and you can get this just about anywhere. Either way, make sure you pair!
