Happy Groundhog Day Muffins

We are making Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins.
We thought groundhogs liked blueberries,
so I have my little granddaughter Maddie in the
kitchen with me today.
She loves to help me cook and make goodies in
the kitchen.
She is picking out the cupcake liners for the muffins below.
We have mixed the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients and
the picture below we are about to mix the two together.
The is a two handed stir. We have added the blueberries and walnuts,
so it makes a thick batter.
Dough is in the muffin liners and now for a few extra chopped walnuts on top.
Maddie put the right amount.
They are baked and came out so pretty.
Now time for tasting.
Since she is Type 1 Diabetic, Maddie can have half a muffin for snack.
She says "Mmmmmm! They are good"
Here is the recipe, they are really simple to make
1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/4 c. oats (not quick oats)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. low-fat buttermilk
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2 T. canola oil
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 - 1 c. blueberries, can use frozen
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line muffin pan.
In large mixing bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In another bowl, mix applesauce, buttermilk, brown sugar, oil and egg.
Mix well the applesauce mixture into the dry ingredients.
Fold in the blueberries and walnuts, reserving a few chopped walnuts for topping.
Divide the batter into the muffin cups, top with chopped walnuts.
Bake for 16 - 18 minutes or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool and enjoy.
