Raspberry Oatmeal Muffins

My husband LOVES the raspberry muffins from Tim Horton's and has been asking me to try to make them. Well I have been searching for a recipe and couldn't find one. Well yesterday I was searching and came across a recipe!!!

Next time they will have raspberries!!!
The recipe calls for buttermilk, but I hate buying things and then throwing them out because I don't use it all. Again I turned to the trusty search engine "Google" and found a substitute: 
     1. Put 1 tbsp on white vinegar (or lemon juice) in a measuring cup.
     2. Top to 1 cup with milk and let it stand for 5 minutes.

I had another little issue!! I bought the raspberries a couple weeks ago and when I went to use them they were no good :( Luckily I had some blueberries in the fridge so I used them instead!! I took a picture, but I *will* be making these again *with* raspberries!!! So I will make sure I get another picture :)

-          1 cup buttermilk (or use my substitute posted above)

-          1 tsp cinnamon
