Oat Muffins with Blueberries

This recipe is from ROBIN HOOD ( I think)…I have it on a torn out page from a magazine…& I am sure that this recipe is over 30 years old.. I remember making these muffins when my kids were little…which was a long time ago!

The recipe calls for buttermilk…which I never have in the house, so I buy buttermilk powder at Bulk Barn, keep it on hand all the time & then I just mix the powder with water according to the product directions & I am ready to go! I also use frozen blueberries for this recipe rather than fresh but you can of course use fresh if you prefer.

The recipe calls for melted butter or margarine, so I used oil instead for no particular reason other then it was simple to just use oil & I didn’t think the taste of the butter would have been necessary in these muffins…

The recipe says it makes 12 muffins & I only got 10…

Here is the recipe from ROBIN HOOD.. called BLUEBERRY OAT MUFFINS with the one change I made…


1 cup oats… I used quick oats

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup oil

1 cup blueberries… I used frozen, I rinsed off the ice that was on them from the package before adding them to the batter


Preheat oven to 400f

Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake papers or grease well… I greased the pan with cooking spray..just spraying well in each muffin cup

  1. Combine the oats & buttermilk in a bowl big enough to mix the batter in & let this sit this for a few minutes & mix it once in a while
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & brown sugar…I just used a fork to mix this together
  3. Next, I mixed the beaten egg with the oil then added this to the oat/buttermilk mixture.mix well
  4. Mix the dry ingredients with the oat mixture & stir just to combine
  5. Fold in the blueberries
  6. Divide batter between the prepared muffin cups
  7. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-22 minutes until the muffins are brown & baked through
  8. Let them cool in the pan for a few minutes so the muffins don’t break apart when you remove them from the pan… then let them cool on a cooling rack before enjoying them!!!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
