Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 regular muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix the flours, 1/2 cup oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

Sprinkle the tops with the remaining 2 tablespoons oats. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Then remove the muffins from the pan. Cool for 5 more minutes before serving.
