Blueberry Muffins Make Easy and Standout Breakfast

Are you tired of eating the same bowl of cereal for breakfast? My kids are, so yesterday I whipped up some Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins for brunch, and served the fluffy muffins alongside scrambled eggs and light turkey sausage.

These oatmeal muffins are wonderful to enjoy at either breakfast or brunch. The hot blueberries explode inside the muffin, and the lemon zest gives the quickbread a lovely contrast in taste. The baked oats give the muffin a slightly crunchier texture on the outside, delightful as you realize the inside is moist and delicious. If you have blueberry lovers in your family, you’ll delight your family when you put a basket of these muffins on the kitchen table!
