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.

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 muffin)

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour (about 3 ounces)
