Instructions

Position an oven rack in the center of your oven and preheat your oven to 400F degrees.

Line a 6-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder and salt until well combined.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, olive oil, sugar, and mustard until well blended. Stir in the broccoli, scallions and 1/4 cup of the cheese.

Add the egg broccoli mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended. (The batter will be very thick.)

Divide the batter equally among the 6 prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle tops with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18-22 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Transfer the muffins from the pan directly to the wire rack.

Serve warm or let cool completely.
