Gluten-Free Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

It’s been a busy week. A week where slowing down just didn’t seem possible. But now it’s the weekend and that means letting your hair down, lounging at the pool, and just plain old having fun. Mr. Smith’s sister (my sister-in-law!) is here in Ottawa, she arrived yesterday afternoon from North Carolina and we’re so happy to have her. It’s her first time meeting Little A!! They are getting along wonderfully and of course, she’s as taken with him as we are 🙂

This morning we were up bright and early, so we kick started the day with some freshly baked blueberry oatmeal muffins.  As I mentioned in this post, we’ve got colanders of yummy berries in the fridge, so adding them into a batch of muffins is quick, easy, and healthy.
Blueberries are rich in anti-oxidants and neutralize free radicals – they are a definite superfood and taste so delicious on their own or in salads and baking. So eat up!

Well friends, I’m out for the weekend – time to relax and chill out! Hope you have a fabulous one 🙂

p.s Happy Father’s Day weekend! To my very special husband, you’re the best dad ever!! x

  1. What a great breakfast muffin, filled with healthy goodness. I love berries of all kinds and this recipe would go good wiht all of them.

  2. These look so good. My husband has been wanting to eat less carbs for breakfast (all we eat now are cereal and toast) so these look like a great option!
