How to Make Blueberry Oat Muffins

These are not your run of the mill muffins. Not only are they absolutely delicious – they have so many powerhouse ingredients that you would feel good about your kids living off of just these! Greek yogurt, applesauce, flaxseed, oats and blueberries. Each one of these gives these muffins major added nutrition, and adds to the texture and flavor as well.

I start these muffins by whisking together the wet ingredients, and then separately whisking the dry ingredients. It might seem unnecessary, but trust me……if you want a light and fluffy muffin then do them seperate.

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. When blueberries are in season then I always use fresh – but to be honest – you can’t really tell the difference in these muffins between fresh and frozen!

Not quite sweet enough, but I serve them to my daughter with a bit of maple syrup to dip in and she says they’re as good as pancakes!

You can use milk or buttermilk- or if you’re looking for a dairy-free substitute, you can try dairy-free yogurt.
