Blueberry Muffins

The other day TT wanted to bake... with blueberries... so we (I) searched high & low on the interwebs for a blueberry muffin recipe that piqued my interest...

I came across How to make the best muffins (Scroll down to, One-Bowl Oatmeal Muffins: Basic Recipe) and was intrigued by the soaking of the oats.

Now, I didn't have a whole cuppa milk... but I did have some vanilla coffee cream.  So I substituted that in place of the milk (I've made a couple batches since, and I honestly don't think I'd even bother trying the milk... the coffee cream, while obviously more fattening, gives such a lovely, subtle vanilla flavour).  I also added a whole pint of blueberries (obviously, otherwise they would have just been oatmeal muffins). 

I wish I had a picture to share but the boys squawk for their muffins the moment I pull them out of the oven... so there are never any left when I have time to find the camera... just know that they are delicious.

Try them.  I double dog dare you.


  1. I am sure your muffins were delicious......but what I take away is that TT wanted to bake with blueberries and you ran with it. LOVE that!

  2. I hadn't pondered it from that perspective... you're right, I'm damn awesome for running with it :)

    I just thought TT wants to bake... this is an ingredient he wants to use, muffins are easy... TT loves muffins... Okay, let's go!
