Cheddar Chile Oat Muffins

If cornbread and a mini muffin had a baby, these cuties are what you would get! The recipe calls for oat flour using Quaker's Old Fashioned Oats plus corn meal as the main ingredients. The flavors include a hint of sweetness from honey, a mild chile flavor (spice level = kid friendly!) and melted cheddar on top.
