HEALTHY OAT & BLUEBERRY BLENDER MUFFINS

Delicious and super healthy, these gluten free Oat & Blueberry Blender Muffins are so easy to make and nutritious enough to have for breakfast!

I promised myself that I was going to get better at breakfast time in 2016. Although I always have great intentions to encourage the kids to eat a wider and more varied diet at breakfast time, I still find myself falling back on the same breakfasts when we are in a rush during the week.

I have seen Blender Muffin recipes all over pinterest lately. This recipe in particular caught my eye and I decided to adapt it to make these super delicious and healthy Oat & Blueberry Blender Muffins. Perfect for busy mornings when I don’t have enough time to prepare a breakfast from scratch.

First of all I have to stress how easy this recipe is. All you need to do is chuck the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blitz until they are all combined. No hard graft needed in mixing or stirring!

These muffins are super nutritious too; made with oats rather than wheat flour and honey instead of refined sugar. They are perfect for breakfast, packed full of slow releasing carbs and fibre and make a great snack for kids too.

One thing I should point out is that because these muffins are made with oats, they are denser than normal muffins. So if you are expecting a super light and fluffy muffin then I don’t want to disappoint you. However, I really like the texture of these muffins and even though they are quite dense, they feel really hearty and filling.
