Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Recently, my daughter asked me to make muffins. I'm not a big muffin fan, but I had some blueberries to use up so I went searching for a good recipe. I came across a recipe at one of my favorite blogs, Smells Like Home. I altered it a bit to fit what I had in the pantry and came up with some very good, very healthy muffins. My husband ended up eating about 5 of them!

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour (can use whole wheat)
1 1/4 cups quick cooking oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup applesauce
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper cases or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

In another bowl combine applesauce, buttermilk, sugar, oil and egg. Make a well in dry ingredients and add applesauce mixture. Stir until just moist. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
Makes about 2 dozen muffins

“Well, I can't eat muffins in an agitated manner. The butter would parobably get on my cuffs. One should always eat muffins quite calmly. It is the only way to eat them.”
-Oscar Wilde 'The Importance of Being Earnest'

I'm not big on muffins either.

I made a New York style cheesecake with cherries yesterday!
