Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins


             Whew..I ate way to much easter chocolate. I realise easter is over..but I kinda bought a bunch that went on sale the day after. I totally think we need to start celebrating the major holidays a few days later because of how much you can save! I bought huge chocolate eggs for around one euro and they were selling them for four euros the day before! So,yeah..I need a detox of sorts now.

These muffins won't win a beauty contest but what they lack in appearance they make up for in flavor. I used half old-fashioned and half quick cooking oats but feel free to use all of one or a combination like I did. The batter is thick so don't be alarmed and pack those muffin cups full!
