I had to register on this site so I could review these muffins! They are transcendent! They remind me of fall trips up to Door County, WI and all of the delicious bakery goods we would enjoy there. The taste is old fashioned (fruit/cinnamon) and the texture is tender but also open holed, hearty and satisfying. I used mixed frozen berries and just tossed them to coat into the oat/flour mixture. Batter got a bit purple but I saved a step :) Also used homemade unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil. I only had a 12-cup muffin tin so they overflowed the top a bit; I'm not a fan of super-sizing everything but I think they make excellent muffin tops or oversized muffins because of the texture and taste. They are like every great muffin you've ever stood in line for at a bakery.
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
This family favorite gets a twist with the addition of whole wheat flour and oatmeal. Tossing unthawed frozen blueberries with a couple tablespoons of flour before adding to the batter keeps them from turning the batter purple while they bake. If you use fresh blueberries, skip that step.
