These Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are the perfect easy breakfast or snack for the kids! Made with quick-cooking oats and whole wheat flour, these blueberry muffins are hearty, healthy, and not too sweet. Buttermilk keeps these muffins incredibly moist, while also giving them a subtle tang. Tossing frozen blueberries with flour before adding them to the batter keeps the batter from turning purple. (If you use fresh blueberries, you can skip this step.)
