Blueberry Flax Muffins

If you didn't know it already, I LOVE muffins. I asked John what kind of baked goods he wanted this weekend and he requested blueberry muffins please, can do! These are the perfect snack with a nice warm mug of tea if I do say so myself. (that is precisely what I'm having as I type this)
How were your weekends? Do anything fun? We spent it pretty low key since Hobbes got spayed on Thursday. Poor thing has to wear the cone of shame now... In case you were wondering she spent the majority of the weekend walking into things and getting trapped... while I followed her around taking pictures to embarrass her with when she's an angstful teen. Awesome.
Blueberry Flax Muffins
recipe by steph chows

In a medium bowl mix together:
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup old fashion oats
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
dash salt

In a large bowl mix together:
6oz fat free yogurt (I used blueberry on the bottom variety)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup splenda (or 1/4 cup white sugar)
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Add 1.5-2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen) to the dry mix and then dump into the wet mixture. Stir until just incorporated, don't over stir. Bake in greased muffin pan (I used liners, they stuck to the muffins like MAD- don't make the same mistake)

Preheat over to 375 and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.

I giggle every time I see Hobbes.  That's because I gave birth to Calvin. Even he will tell everyone that.  Now he's raising a little Calvin.  Sometimes, there really is justice.

Too funny! They say what comes around goes around :) And so glad you got the reference, so many people don't know the comic and it makes me so sad!!

awww... poor puppy! I've been wanting to tell you that we've had a Hobbes in our family too. My brother-in-law had a schnauzer named Hobbes.... great dog.

Muffins look great (and healthy) as usual!

Awwww so fun!! See it is a great dog name :D

I love this recipe.  I made it the other day and I was really impressed.  I love the great taste of the brown sugar.  Sorry your puppy has to wear the cone, my was in that position just a few weeks ago too.  They are so resilient though.  Keep up the good work!
