Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins #MuffinMonday

July has been a crazy month and one of the things that has been keeping me busy is the garden. The blueberries are having a great year and we've been enjoying them a variety of ways, pancakes, waffles, and muffins. 


I found Donna B's Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins on the Taste of Home site.  The only change I made was the yogurt, I had blueberry Greek yogurt on hand so that's what I used.   

I reserved a tablespoon of flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the blueberries.  My grandmother taught me this trick to keep them from sinking to the bottom.  It worked quite nicely.  


I like to use a cookie scoop for the batter. It helps them bake consistently. I also pressed a few extra berries onto the tops of the muffins and then sprinkled them with raw sugar.  We love that little bit of sparkle and crunch.


I definitely will be making another batch of these before berry season is over, they disappeared very quickly! Thanks so much to Stacy for hosting #MuffinMonday and to all the other awesome bloggers who shared recipes today, be sure to go check out what they made using the links down below!

  1. I am so jealous of your blueberry bushes (they grow on bushes, right?) because I can't seem to grow anything that the birds don't beat me to before I can pick it. That raw sugar is gorgeous on top of your lovely muffins, Jolene!

    1. I've got 9 high bush blueberries. There are low bush wild varieties in New England too. The birds actually haven't been an issue but we've got a few baby deer that have been snacking!

  2. So satisfying to pick bounty from your garden and create a delicious dish.

  3. I am trying not to be too envious of your home grown blueberries! Your muffins look so tender and tasty.

    1. Most of them are heirloom bushes that are over 50 years old, it's been a bit of work to get them dialed in, but so so worth it!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Lemon Chicken Rice Soup

I've been making this Lemon Chicken Rice Soup for over a decade and we love it now as much as we did the first time I made it.  It's a "semi-homemade" recipe that comes together quickly but tastes like you spent all day on it. I start with chicken breast tenderloins chopped into bite sized pieces.  You can use any cut you want, you just want about 1 1/2 pounds. I cook the chicken with a little olive oil and fresh cracked black pepper in a dutch oven until the chicken is no longer pink.   Next up is carrots.  You can use thinly sliced carrots but I like to run mine over the Microplane. They get distributed so much more evenly that way.  I then add a 32oz low sodium chicken broth and cream of chicken soup and stir well. I've admitted in the past, I cannot cook rice, so the Ben's Ready Rice are one of my culinary best friends. I love the Roast Chicken flavor for this! I microwave them for about 60 seconds before adding them into the pot.  Obviously the key to thi
