Yummy Berry Muffins

Control the added fats your kids eat by providing your own baked items.  You can make these easily in the evening after the kids are in bed, or on the weekend to be snacked on throughout the week:


Low-fat, Yummy Blueberry Muffins


1 c. flour

1 c. oatmeal

3 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

4 tsp. baking powder

1 c. blueberries, washed

1 egg

1 c. milk

¼ c. vegetable oil

nonstick cooking spray



• Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C).

• In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

• Mix in blueberries.

• In another bowl, break the egg and use a fork to beat it just a little bit. Then add the milk and vegetable oil, and mix.  Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl.  Mix about 25 or 30 times and let it remain lumpy.

• Line your muffin tin with paper liners or lightly spray with nonstick spray. Spoon in the muffin mix. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 of the way up.

Bake for about 20 minutes.

Cool and Enjoy!
