My grandson, Tater Tot,  loves blueberry muffins. He calls them cupcakes. I try to make them when he comes to visit his Southern Nana. These muffins are great anytime!

1/2 cup instant oats
3/4 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (can use half wheat flour)
1/2 cup sugar (I use splenda)
1 1/4 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup canola oil
1 egg, beaten
1 cup blueberries (I use fresh but can use frozen)
4 tsps. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees, grease or spray 12 cup muffin pan. Mix oats and orange juice together and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/2 cup splenda or sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Blend in egg and oil. Stir in oat mixture and fold in blueberries. Spoon into muffin pan. Mix 4 tsps. sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle over tops of batter.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes.

These are great with coffee in the morning.  ENJOY!

      You can post it on the Facebook page if you are on Facebook. There is not any way to post it on the website Nancy.

  2. These look wonderful and I love your grandson’s nickname.
