Reviews for Oat and Blueberry Muffins
"Whole wheat flour works great! These are delicious!"
"They were good but not outstanding. Very dense and kind of dry. More of traditional shortcake texture then a muffin texture. But for a less fat/less sugar recipe it's not bad."
"great tasting enjoyed by all"
"If you are looking for a good lower-sugar muffin this is it. I made first like the recipe except i used whole eggs and they were good. Next time, I omitted the water & blueberries, used one whole egg, and added 2 mashed bananas and 1/2 t vanilla. This is now my go-to banana oatmeal muffin recipe! I do use White Lily flour, which always bakes up more soft and moist than other flours."
"This is a very heavy muffin. They are tasty but not a light snack. I used milk instead of water and they tasted good. I got about 16 muffins out of the recipe."
"Love blueberry muffins; love oat muffins...didn't love the two together. But this oat muffin had a great taste and texture and I will use it again...maybe (instead of blueberries) with peaches as suggested by another user, maybe with apples and raisins/Craisins."
"These muffins are so yummy! They are very flavorful but not too sweet - definitely a healthier alternative to traditional blueberry muffins. The only change I made was substituting milk for water because I wanted a creamier flavor. Excellent recipe that I will be making again!"
"These muffins were easy to make. I added 1/4 cup Wheat Germ to them, and substituted a large chopped peach for the blueberries. I also added a handful of sliced almonds. Next time I will use whole wheat flour-I didn't have any on hand. They were very good, the oats give them a chewy texture. Great for an after school snack or a quick breakfast with some yogurt."
