Blueberry and Oat
Breakfast Muffins

These muffins are best eaten within a couple of hours of baking, but they can be frozen for up to 1 month. Wrap each muffin individually in foil, place in a large resealable plastic bag, expel all the air and tightly seal. Thaw the muffins at room temperature and reheat in a low oven.
