Add the buttermilk and molasses and beat until combined.

Slowly fold in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. There are going to be lumps, it’s ok. You DO NOT want to overmix muffins they will become tough.

Evenly divide batter into the muffin tin with an ice cream scoop. The muffins cups will be full.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake they will dry out.
