These muffins are surprisingly tasty, with unusual and healthy ingredients. I threw away my old blueberry muffin recipes after making these, which I do often!

My family are blueberry muffin fans and I have tried many different recipes. They were all good, but Aunt Betty's recipe is our number 1 favorite of all time. I have made these countless times and they get eaten up in record time. The orange juice gives them a really nice flavor that goes well with the blueberries. I make them with gluten free flour ( Bobs Red Mill ) and I use stevia instead of sugar and I add extra blueberries and they turn out perfect every time. I have a feeling I'll be making these muffins for years to come.

These muffins are so delicious! I've made a double batch at least 5 times and have frozen blueberries in anticipation of making many more batches. We did find the muffins to be a bit oily, so I use half the oil the recipe calls for and substitute applesauce for the other half of the oil. We find the muffins sweet enough without the cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top so we omit that also. I highly recommend that you give this recipe a try!

These muffins are delicious and very easy to put together. I followed the recipe exactly (added orange zest as suggested) and they turned out great! This recipe is a keeper! Thank you for posting it.

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!

Absolutely love this recipe!!! I have made this dozens of times as written and then decided to vary the fruit and juice..... tried lemonade with fresh lemon zest and added raspberries. Another hit!! Thanks for sharing!!!!
