Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
On a recent shopping run to our local Costco, I picked up a large container of blueberries to have with my breakfast. The only problem is that it's difficult to finish all of them before they begin to expire, so today I decided to make a double batch of these muffins, share with a neighbor, have a taste myself and freeze the rest for when our next "batch" of visitors arrive.
I found a recipe and worked it up my way. Jim smiled as I can't seem to take a recipe and just create it. I always envision something just a little different. My way does not always work, but this time they turned out quite tasty. They are also easy and quick to make. I wish my mom was still visiting as I know they would have been her breakfast!
Here is my take on these healthy, tasty muffins that will give you a boost to your day!
6 ounces fat free vanilla yogurt
2 ounces applesauce
1 cup oats
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 400
Add paper wraps to muffin tin or grease. (I use paper wraps)
In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, applesauce and oats.
In a separate bowl, mix the egg, oil and brown sugar and add the rest of the ingredients without mixing too much.
Fold in blueberries
Fill muffin tins
Bake for 18-20 minutes
While you do need to let them cool for a while, eating one warm is like a blue heaven. Surprise someone you love with these for breakfast. They will smile for days.
Have a great week everyone and remember, a good life deserves good food...
Fino a quel momento (until that time)
