Food: Rolled Oats and Berry Muffins.

Muffins do something for me.

They make a rainy day, sunny.

They make me forget all my worries.

These help remind me of the warmer air to come…I used fresh berries this time – oh how I would like to pick berries this summer.

Maybe it helps because I have a pad on butter on them?


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, or raspberries, or blackberries or a combination
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

1. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through cinnamon) in a large bowl. Make a well in center of mixture.

2. Combine milk, butter (cooled), vanilla, and egg in a small bowl; add to flour mixture, stirring until just moist. Gently stir in berries.

3. Spoon 1/2 cup batter into each of the muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 16 minutes. Take out and sprinkle muffins evenly with granulated sugar; bake 3 more minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in the center.

4. Cool in pans for 10 minutes on wire rack.

Enjoy with a pad of butter or put in air tight container for the next mornings treat.

*Apple-pie spice can be used instead of the nutmeg and cinnamon.

  1. Yum…open some window when you take them out of the oven and you might make friends with more of your neighbors….or keep it shut if that isn’t such a great idea.!
