My Aunt Betty bakes many times each Christmas, but I look forward to these mouthwatering muffins the most. She gives me enough so that I can freeze and enjoy them for weeks. —Sheila Raleigh, Kechi, Kansas

"did them just liek the recipe says and they were awesome ! A true muffin, crisp on the outside;moist, but light inside, not overly sweet. If you are looking for, cake in a cup, this is not your recipe. If you love a light muffin you will be pleased."

"I'm always looking for a good homemade blueberry muffin recipe and I found it today! These are awesome! I am planning to take these on our next camping trip to share with my family! Great recipe, the orange juice adds a unique taste to them and the oatmeal keeps them moist, but not heavy or dry. Will definately make these again!"
