Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

image_pdf

I cleaned out my freezer this last weekend and found a couple of bags of blueberries from last year. I thought I should use them so I decided to make some muffins. But not just any ol’ muffin – Oatmeal muffins.

How to Do it:

The first step is to mix up the dry and the wet ingredients separately.

In a large bowl, place all the dry ingredients and mix them.

In another bowl, place all the wet ingredients, except the blueberries and whisk until fully blended.

Next, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients,

then pour the wet ingredients into the hole.

Gently fold the ingredients together until all the dry mixture is wet (there is no more powder visible). Be careful not to over mix. When you over mix, the muffins are tough and don’t bake evenly. The tops form peaks instead of being round and even.

Now, carefully fold in the blueberries.

Brush the inside of the muffin tins with olive oil and place 1/4 cup of the batter into each muffin cup.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until a pick poked in the center comes out clean and the tops are golden.

Allow to cool on a wire rack and enjoy warm or cold. They freeze well too. Take them out of the freezer as needed!

    Mmmm, they look so good! I was cleaning my freezer as well, to make room for my end of season harvest, and found a bag of raspberries from last year. Maybe I will try your recipe, with my raspberries. 🙂

    these sound healthy-great. I’ve already printed out the recipe. I take it fresh blueberries will work as well as frozen.

    I love blueberry muffins! I’m always on the hunt for recipes where I can substitute GF flour so my daughter can eat them, I find things like this, where oats make up the difference in flour, tend to work quite well. Can’t wait to try. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

      Instead of all-purpose flour a combination of gluten free all-purpose and almond meal would be good.
      Thanks for stopping by!
