Healthy Mixed Berry Muffins

Posted by on July 17, 2015

My cousin is not a baker. She’s a cook. She’ll be the first to tell you that. Give her ingredients and watch her toss them together, add spices, taste, and adjust as necessary and whatever she makes will be delicious. But when she needs a cheesecake, she asks me to make it. So when she told me about these amazing, healthy mixed berry muffins she made, I had to try them. (And she let me share the recipe with you!)

Her original recipe called for strawberries and blueberries. I didn’t have strawberries, but I had frozen raspberries. So I kept the measurements the same and swapped out berries. After tasting them, I’m thinking I might try them with raspberries and rhubarb later this summer. Just about any berry mixture would be delicious in these!

1 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats

1/3 cup applesauce (I LOVE adding applesauce to my baked goods. Makes everything moist and yummy!)

    Made these this morning and they turned out very well. The oatmeal gives it that familiar, comforting flavor and the berries offered up those big, juicy blasts of sunshsine! I had leftover blueberries and blackberries from the week so that’s what I used. Can’t wait to make them again with whatever berries I have on hand and maybe a little lemon zest thrown in as well. Four big thumbs up from me and my husband – thanks for sharing this keeper!
