Aunt Betty's Blueberry Muffins Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine oats and orange juice; let stand for 5 minutes. Beat in the egg, oil and sugar until blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; stir into oat mixture just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: about 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
