Blueberry Orange Oatmeal Muffins

Guys. I am serious about breakfast pastries. Nothing says “Leisurely weekend breakfast” to me more than muffins or croissants or cinnamon rolls, etc. I also am particular about my muffins because all too often they’re really just cupcakes masquerading as naked, fruity breakfast foods.

Not these bad boys. Blueberry Orange Oatmeal Muffins by DamnDelicious.net are flavorful AND healthy!

I’ll let you in a little secret. I have a lot of recipes pinned for muffins. Lots. But I keep coming back to this one. I’ve made it a few times now. It’s always great, and I like it, too, because when I make these I tend to wake up that morning (as I did this past weekend) and say, “I need muffins now” and I already have everything I need in my pantry!

I really love the oaty texture of these, and the orange zest (do not under any circumstances skip the orange zest in these!!) make them extra flavorful and bright. Second secret: I’ve made these with blueberries before, and they’re excellent. But this time I didn’t have blueberries, I only had a triple berry blend in my freezer (pretty sure it was blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry) so I used that instead. Still delicious! Pretty much any berry will work in these, though I wouldn’t recommend strawberries.

Ratings

Flavor: Five Stars – Hearty, juicy berries, bright orange

Skill Level: Low – I mean, I guess it’s true that they aren’t easy easy as opening a package and mixing it up. But they’re still pretty easy and many people will find that they already have all or most of the ingredients in their pantries. Hardest part: zesting the orange.

Overall: Five Stars – Easy, delicious, and a perfect treat for a nice weekend breakfast. Plus they keep well for a few days to eat throughout the week, or you can freeze them and pop one in the microwave whenever you want.

Like I said, I keep coming back to these muffins. They’re so yummy!
