Orange Blueberry Muffins2

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 cooking oil or can use 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick), melted
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!

Note:  You can add one medium mashed banana to this recipe if you like. Cook the same amount of time at the same temperature.
