These Berry Morning Muffins are a fruity and delicious easy breakfast recipe.
In the winter months, my morning routine of a berry smoothie doesn’t sound so appealing. Something warm and hearty, like these Berry Morning Muffins, is a much better fit. Filled with oatmeal and juicy berries, they’re the perfect comfort food for chilly mornings.
Since you use frozen berries in this recipe, you can actually make them any time of year. Be sure and keep the berries frozen right up until you add them to the batter. That way, they stay whole and don’t discolor the batter.
These Berry Morning Muffins also make a great after school snack! Try them sometime along with Chocolate Banana Mini Muffins and Brown Sugar Maple Muffins.
