Ahh, morning. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, the coffee is…in the microwave where it has been for the past hour because I meant to get it hot again but I keep forgetting it’s in there. Baked oatmeal blueberry muffins are a great accompaniment to that cold coffee!
Are your mornings hectic? Trying to get the kiddos fed and your coffee down and some semblance of order to the day can be a real challenge, especially for those mamas that aren’t “morning people”. Because most kids definitely are morning people. : )
I love having breakfast foods that I can pull out of the freezer to make our mornings a bit more smooth. I make a whole bunch of muffins and freeze them so that I can just pull them out later when we need a quick breakfast. Of course doctor these baked oatmeal muffins up anyway you’d like and serve with fresh fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, or cheese sticks.
Let these thaw out the night before you need them and they’ll be ready to heat in the morning, either in the microwave or in a warm oven. And feel free to use frozen blueberries in these; just give them a dusting of flour to keep them from sinking to the bottom of your muffin cups. Don’t ask me how I know this little trick.Print
