This recipe was given to me some time ago, and I've used it often since. In fact, it's so good that it won first prize at a county fair! Blueberries are plentiful here in the Midwest, and this is a delicious way to prepare them.

"My muffins are baking now! :) I Only have rolled oats, but I had a can of orange juice concentrate . It yielded 1 1/2 cups liquid when defrosted, so I just used that figuring the extra liquid will help process the less processed oats *hopefully fingers crossed*. I also chose to use allspice vs cinnamon just cause I like it better & have kinda been obsessed lately. ...& apparently I left out the baking soda...joys of parenting a toddler :) Lets hope they turn out as amazin as they smell :)

update: they taste great! wouldn't even know I forgot the baking soda :) Made 24 muffins & 1 small loaf."

"Absolutely delicious! I was looking for an orange quick bread recipe to make for Sunday breakfast & saw this one. Since I had blueberries on hand that I needed to use up, I made these! Got rave reviews from the whole family, even the non-berry lovers. The only thing I omitted was the nuts in the topping. Didn't have any on hand. They were perfect without them! Will definitely make often!"
