Blueberry Muffins

Prep time: about 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. oatmeal
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 c. blueberries, washed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. milk
  • ¼ c. vegetable oil
  • nonstick spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400º F (200º C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Mix in blueberries.
  4. In another bowl, break the egg and use a fork to beat it just a little bit. Then add the milk and vegetable oil, and mix.
  5. Add this mixture to the first mixture in the large bowl.
  6. Using a mixing spoon, mix about 25 or 30 times. Don't mix too much! Your muffin mixture should be lumpy, not smooth.

  8. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  9. When muffins are finished baking, remove from muffin tin and cool them on a wire rack.
  10. Enjoy your tasty muffins!
