Black Hole dense muffins

As many of my friends can attest, these are dense enough to be a meal unto themselves. It doesn't hurt that I'm baking them in mini-bundt pans. Still, these are great for long trips or excursions with limited food options. If you're just snacking, 'though, I'd advise splitting one with a friend. :)

There's a lot of room for variation in this recipe, so I've listed various components I've tried at some point or another.

1 cup quick-cooking or steel cut oats
1/2 cup soy milk or milk
3/4 cup maple syrup or honey
1/4 cup melted margarine or applesauce
1 egg or 1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 cup all-purpose or whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, chocolate chips or dried fruits (optional)

Preheat oven to 400° F. Grease bottoms of muffin tin.

In a large bowl, combine oats and milk, allow to soak until — standing — oats appear to have absorbed the milk. Add syrup, margarine, egg. Blend. Add remaining ingredients, stir until moistened. Pour batter into muffin tin, filling cups to 2/3 full.

Bake 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into centre of muffin comes out clean. Remove from pan to cool, if possible.
