Who doesn’t love muffins? Really… there are so many varieties, and so many sizes and ways to make them. You can totally indulge or comply with a healthy lifestyle… you can add so many toppings and so many fillings… so when I added these to my muffin repertoire, I had to make sure they were delicious enough to contend with all the other recipes out there.
I like these ones since they offer oatmeal which helps keep me satisfied longer, and a little less sugar because of the sweet blueberries helps out as well. While they aren’t sitting in the “total indulgence” category, they are sitting in the ‘perfect for breakfast, an easy snack, and lunch friendly’ categories… and those are definitely a few reasons why they will continue to end up on our kitchen table.

If for some reason you think you made too many, these are perfect for the freezer. Place in a freezer bag, and defrost on your counter or in your microwave. Talk about easy right?!
