It’s hot here, I mean really hot!
All the plants are feeling it! The poor little hydrangea looks like it’s been run over and I watered it this morning before I left for work. Even the herbs look tired and they’ll last through anything.
A warm breakfast just isn’t doing the trick these mornings. I love oatmeal though, it keeps me full, is a whole grain, can be flavored so many different ways, and is fairly cheap. So what’s a girl to do? Summer Oatmeal Muffins of course!
Yum! Look at all the oatmeal texture and color from the blueberries!
The best part is, these can be made up in little time and a whole batch will last at least for a few days! Did I mention, these are healthy and contain NO OIL! And unlike most oil free muffins, these don’t call for 20 different ingredients!
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup pressed oats, not instant
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- fruits/chocolate chips/spices to customize (I used 1 cup blueberries and 1/4 cup dried, unsweetened coconut)
