  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.

"I made them last night. I used orange zest with the fresh orange juice. Although the orange flavor was light, the muffins were very moist and very good. I will make them again."

"These were great! Family loved them! The oatmeal and orange juice adds a nice touch. I did add an extra cup of blueberries since I had so many. Very moist muffins and simple to make. Wonderful breakfast treat - and don't forget the sugar cinnamon topping! I baked them at 375 degrees for 25 minutes and they were perfect. Thanks, Aunt Betty!"

"I like to double or triple this recipe when blueberries are in season and then freeze the muffins. They are not overly sweet but taste wonderful."
