This Week's Recipe--Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

This week's recipe is one that I started using last summer after I had packed my cookbooks but was still cooking! Poor planning, but it did help me find a few new 'keepers' to add to my recipe box! I made these while my mom was here and she liked them, too! Oddly, they aren't rated very highly on Better Homes & Gardens website, but everyone I've served them to has liked them.

The Recipe
The recipe can be found in a printable version here.

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


1. Grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups or thirty-six 1-3/4-inch muffins cups, or line them with paper bake cups; set aside. (If you don't have enough muffin pans, bake half the batter at a time. Refrigerate remaining batter.)

2. Stir together flour, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.

3. Combine egg, milk, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla in another bowl. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy.) Fold blueberries into the batter. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each three-quarters full.

4. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 16 to 18 minutes for 2-1/2-inch muffins or 10 to 12 minutes for 1-3/4-inch muffins or until done. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes; remove muffins from cups. Serve warm.

Makes 12 regular-size or 36 small muffins.

I have stuck with the recipe on this one! As I was re-reading this recipe for the post, I thought I might try some applesauce in place of some oil and maybe some whole wheat flour, too. Experiment, experiment, experiment!'s blueberry season (not quite up here, but soon!). Try 'em out!


  1. As soon as it cools down here enough that I want to turn the oven on I'm going to whip up a batch of these. They are yummy!
