Recipe: Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

These are perfect for as an addition to breakfast, an afternoon “pick me up,” or even a post-dinner snack. The batter matches perfectly with the blueberries, and the cinnamon & ginger adds a flavorful addition. I’d recommend folding in some chopped walnuts or pecans, but this is totally optional.

These muffins are dairy-free, consist of mostly whole grains, and are a delicious & healthy portable snack. Serve these as they are or with some almond butter spread on top. The other day my dad was eating a muffin and decided cut it in half horizontally: He preceded to pop both halves in the toaster and spread on some butter & jam; I tried this myself and would highly recommend.
