Do you want to treat yourself or your loved ones with some delicious muffins? 😍
These muffins are so easy and quick to prepare. There is no need for any fancy equipment.. just 2 bowls and a spatula! I bet you have those in your kitchen already 😉
These muffins are healthy and super tasty. They are soft in texture, with a pop of juice from the blueberries. I have used fresh blueberries. However, if fresh ones are not available for you, you can also opt for frozen ones. Just chuck them in the batter directly from the freezer.
This recipe calls for buttermilk. In case this is hard to get your hands on, do not be discouraged. This can simply be replaced with a tablespoon of lemon juice and 245ml of milk. Mix both ingredients together and let them stand for at least 5 minutes until the acidity from the lemon juice starts curdling the milk.
The blueberry oat muffins are ideal as breakfast on the go or as a snack. They pair excellently with a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee!
