Hello all. Here is the recipe for the muffins. I had to type this out last night after I posted yesterday, with the intention of sharing it. I have done these muffins so many times and I play around with the recipe so much that I had to search for the original recipe to share. :-) So here it is. I also sometimes don't put the blueberries in and then I put a bit of cinnamon and raisins in these to taste and they come out sort of like big oatmeal raisin cookies. As I said yesterday, I have found that a bit of peanut butter tastes good smeared on the blueberry ones. So I thought that I would try next time to add peanut butter to the recipe and see how that tastes. I got this recipe from a fellow blogger, Jenn, a while back. It is healthy-ish and not too sweet. So without any further commentary by me, here it is...enjoy! :-)
OATMEAL BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup soy milk (or regular milk)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (whole meal flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or applesauce(for healthier option)
1 cup blueberries
- Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
- Combine oats and milk in small bowl; set aside and let stand.
- Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt, brown sugar, and stir well. I sift all the dry ingredients to make the muffins fluffy.
- Add egg and melted butter or applesauce to oats.
- Rinse and pat dry the blueberries and toss into the dry ingredients and this prevents them from sinking in the muffins.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir just until all is moistened.
- Gently fold in the blueberries and then spoon the mix into muffin pan until three-quarters full each.
- Bake for 17 to 20 minutes.

You can use large muffin pans, and you get 8 muffins because they are so big. You can use any size you like, obviously the nutritional content will change with size. Very tasty and healthy muffins, ENJOY!!!!!
Just one more note: This recipe is written with US measurements. Since I am in the UK, I had to convert the recipe. So for any UK readers, I have been measuring one US cup as 8 fluid ounces. Have a great day!! :-)
