Buttermilk Oat Blueberry Muffin

Something for the weekend.

They’re best eaten right away because the granola topping will soften after one day, but if you don’t mind that then it’s all good. If you want to save them for the week, wrap each muffins tightly in a plastic wrap (cling film) after they’ve cooled down.

    LOVE this recipe! I have made the muffins often and they are always a BIG hit. I had a similar recipe a few years ago and have lost it over the years and several moves. Thanks for sharing yours so I can make the blueberry oatmeal muffins I remember :)

    I didn’t thaw the frozen blueberries because I didn’t want to turn the batter blue. I used 100% barley flour and also added a tsp ground flax/chia seed. They turned out nicely, not too sweet. I would use unsalted butter next time though or decrease the salt to 1/4tsp if using regular butter.
