"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!"

"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!"
