I am always looking for healthy snacks for my kids. I hate always having the go to snack basket with fruit snacks and granola bars. So making something that they will not only eat, but love is always a treat.

These blueberry oat muffins take minutes to mix up, bake and devour. We have them for snacks, breakfast and sometimes even dessert. They are filled with healthy fibers and putting fresh blueberries in the mix make them an even better treat.

This is a great recipe for you to do with the kids. The measurements are basic and the ingredients simple. I seriously couldn’t take the pictures fast enough! They were eating my blueberries as fast as I was putting them out plus I kept catching little fingers in my shots.

Another bonus for this recipe is that you can even freeze a bag of them for up to two months. Sometimes we can’t eat a dozen fast enough, so I’ll freeze half a dozen and just pull them out the night before for a fresh new breakfast.
