Baby Day Muffins

Orange Oatmeal Muffins

1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup of boiling water
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of white sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup of flour
1 tsp. of baking powder
1 tsp. of baking soda
3/4 tsp. of salt
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
1 tsp. of vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In small bowl, soak oatmeal in orange juice and boiling water for fifteen minutes. Meanwhile, in large bowl cream butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs and oatmeal mixture. In separate bowl blend flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir into batter. Pour into greased muffin tins, bake for 20 minutes.

*This is the recipe of muffins I made while waiting for contractions to start with Lexi's labor. It seemed to do the trick, I was in active labor by the time they came out of the oven. Maybe it will work for some of you expectant mothers out there! ;)
