Nuts and Oats Blueberry Muffins: Whole Wheat and Germ

Nuts and Oats Blueberry Muffins. What else can I say?! The name says it all 🙂

Super yummy! Perfect for breakfast or as a snack. Fresh blueberries, walnuts, oatmeal, flaxseed, whole wheat flour and wheat germ…everything you want in a healthy, delicious bite!

And what’s more convenient for eating than a muffin?

This week I bought a 10 pound box of fresh Michigan blueberries. I picked it up along with the my CSA box. I froze the majority of the blueberries to enjoy later, but kept a few cups in the refrigerator. We’ve been enjoying blueberries in our green salads and I put some in my morning smoothies. Tomorrow we’ll have blueberry buckwheat pancakes for breakfast!

With seasonal, fresh blueberries on my mind I wanted more. So I made muffins 🙂

Wonderful Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries are like little pills of healthiness. They are packed full of antioxidants that help your body fight against disease and cancer. I LOVE THEM! And not because they are so good for me, but because they are very delicious, juicy and have just the right amount of natural sweetness.

These little superfruits are native to North America and have been around for more than 13,000 years. They were first sold commercially 100 years ago and it is safe to say, they’ve been a favorite purchase ever since. Blueberries are in season somewhere in North American from April thru September.

Making blueberry muffins is a super easy way to add lots of vitamin C to you diet, as well as vitamins A, B and E. The berries are also packed full of potassium, copper, magnesium and dietary fiber jut to name a few nutrients. All this healthiness helps us fight against cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders. They are good for our eyes, skin and digestive systems.

And when you make my Nuts and Oats Blueberry Muffins recipe, you also add other health benefits. Omega 3-fatty acids from the walnuts. Protein from the oatmeal. And more whole grains in your daily diet with whole wheat flour, wheat germ and flaxseed.
