This muffin can’t offer world peace, but they just might make your mornings more peaceful! Blueberry Oat Muffins are a great healthy start to the day, and they make a great on-the-go breakfast for busy families.
I like to play with the flavor and textures of baked goods, so I add milled flax seed and wheat germ to the muffins. It’s an extra source of Omega-3’s and helps add to that nuttiness. And a little lemon zest enhances out the blueberry flavor. Those ingredients are optional, but I strongly recommend them!
