Yes, these muffins are insanely good! Hard to believe they are low fat. Think baked oatmeal, but in the form of a muffin... so moist and they are just as good the next day.
Someone shared their oatmeal muffin recipe with me which was the base for this recipe, but I played around with the ingredients and made some modifications to make it over-the-top good! My husband said they were the BEST blueberry muffins he ever tasted, and my two year old thought they were cupcakes. Sadly, they are all gone now so I guess I'll have to whip up another batch next weekend.
Think of the variations you can come up with replacing the blueberries with raisins, apples or even chocolate chips!
