I am always trying to get my family to eat healthier and eat oatmeal. They won't touch it. So when I found these muffins, I thought what a great way to get them to eat some oatmeal in the muffins.
Start by taking 1/2 c of oats and soak in 1/2 c. of orange juice. Let the oats soak while you combine the rest of ingredients.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt together. Add vegetable oil and egg.
At this point, add the orange juice and oatmeal. Carefully combine until the dry ingredients are just mixed. Muffins require very gently mixing.
Lastly fold in one cup of fresh blueberries.
Spoon into a greased muffin pan. I sprinkled sugar and cinnamon onto the top of the muffin batter. This recipe makes 12 muffins.
Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.
The orange juice adds a touch of brightness to the muffins and makes the blueberries taste so good.
