If you like old fashioned porridge you’ll love these muffins.
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are like a bowl of porridge for people on the go. Made with a combination of rolled oats and whole wheat flour they’re wholesome, filling and are just the right kind of sweet for a healthy snack. And they’re refined sugar-free — sweetened only with molasses and maple syrup.
While I enjoy them at breakfast, or mid-morning, my son has been eating them as an afternoon snack. They’re a good stand in for dessert too if you’re in the mood for something that isn’t too sweet.
Molasses and maple syrup are a great pairing in recipes. Using half molasses means that you’ll need to use less maple syrup, saving some money, and the maple-molasses blend tastes more like a dark, late season maple syrup, the grade that’s much more flavourful.
The recipe is inspired by a recipe in the terrific cookbook, Real Sweet by Shauna Server.
