Oatmeal and Berry Muffins

I haven't made muffins in a very, very long time.

I make cupcakes…most days. So pulling out my cupcake pans on my day off hasn't appealed to me lately.

But here are some reasons why muffins are worth it: easier to make than cake (literally, because you don't have to make any frosting), they BEG to be eaten with massive amounts of coffee (I mean they nearly always sell muffins at coffee shops for a reason-it's a conspiracy!) and a muffin a day keeps the doctor away.

What? You think that last one isn't quite right?

Shows how much you know.

Oatmeal and Berry Muffins, makes 12-15 standard size

Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/4 cups oats, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup apple sauce, 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 1 large egg and 1 cup fresh berries (I used raspberries).

In a large bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. In a separate bowl combine beaten egg, applesauce and oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix, stir to combine. Add in the buttermilk and stir until just combined. Fold in the berries.

Fill generously greased muffin tins 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 375 F for 16-18 minutes.

P.S. What's your favorite berry?

Hey Emma!
I always read your blog and I look at you with admiration, for I really CAN’T bake anything at all, or cook or, you know, just make some orange juice -haha, but please don’t make fun of me :D
The fact is, I always want to try your recipes (which seem to be all delicious) but I never do.
…and yet, THIS time will be different. I don’t know why, but this muffins recipe totally got me. No escape now, it’s me against the berry muffins. I’ll keep you updated about how this thing ends!
Love, Seri.
PS. thanks for your blog! I find it awesome!

i have an insane amount of fresh blueberries in my freezer and this seems like the perfect solution for baking with them. these muffisn sound GREAT!

I like all kinds of berries.. Gooseberries, blackberries, strawberries, you name it. I love the combination of strawberries and plums. Recently I discovered my favourite berry is a blueberry.
Anyway. Gonna make those muffins real soon. Maybe tomorrow.

They look so yummy. I guess I need some of those for breakfast tomorrow.
My favorite berry? It’s a tie between raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. I really can’t descide. =)

And the answer is, strawberry.
