i baked these toasty oatmeal muffins
{original recipe is here - i made a few changes}

toasty oatmeal muffins

dry ingredients:
8 tablespoons butter, divided
2 cups rolled oats
1 3/4 cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons baking soda
{i added 1 cup chopped pecans}

1 1/3 cups brown sugar, packed
1 3/4 cups milk

topping ingredients:
½ cup rolled oats
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup pecans, chopped fine
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, melted

melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet. 
add the oats and stir over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes until golden brown. 
blend into flour in a blender. 
add the remaining dry ingredients (not the brown sugar) and blend to combine.

melt the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter.
in a large bowl, whisk the butter with the sugar. 
add the eggs and milk and vanilla. 
whisk in the dry ingredients. 
the batter will be very thin. 
allow to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes to thicken up before ladling into muffin tins.

stir together topping ingredients & sprinkle over the muffins.

bake the muffins at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
