Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, mix together oats and buttermilk. Allow to sit for a few minutes.
Combine egg, brown sugar and oil in another mixing bowl. Add this to the oat mixture and stir until well combined.
In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.
Pour in the liquid mixture and stir. The batter will become fairly thick at this point, however, this is how the batter should be. Make sure everything is well combined and no lumps of dry flour remain.
Fold in raisins.
Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. These muffins will rise a fair bit, so you don’t want to fill them to the top.
