  3. Add flour, oats and baking powder and mix just until incorporated.

  5. Bake for about 12-18 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs.
  6. Cool completely before frosting.
  7. Glaze: In a small bowl stir together powdered sugar and water into a thick mixture. If the mixture is too thin - add a little more powdered sugar if it is too thick – add a little more water.
  8. Transfer the frosting to a small pastry bag and pipe on top of the muffins.

Recipe Notes
