Is it strange that when I thought about what kind of treat I wanted to post for my birthday, the thing that kept popping into my mind was blueberry muffins??
No, not cupcakes. Not cookies. Not some ridiculous ice cream sundae. Muffins. Blueberry muffins. Goddddd I love them.
I’m sure you’ve noticed (especially if you follow my Instagram) that I’ve been having a bit of a muffin obsession lately. I’ve always been a pretty big muffin fan, but my muffin game has never been this extreme. Like, I make them almost every weekend. And we eat the whole batch in two days. Yeah. It’s that bad. No wonder all I could think about was muffins.
And blueberry muffins are my favorite kind of muffin. When I was a kid, I drooled over those huge mega blueberry muffins from Wegman’s on a regular basis. You know those ones with that beautiful crystallized sugar on top? Yes, those ones. The muffins of my dreams.
But times have changed and my blueberry muffin cravings have changed along with that. So instead of sugar-loaded, enriched flour, mega muffins (as delicious as you are), I made these simple and wholesome, yet scrumptious blueberry oat muffins. The perfect birthday breakfast treat!
So, yes, today is my birthday. I am officially 26, which Nate keeps telling me is middle aged. Ohhh, jokes. Once you cross over that 25 hump there’s just no turning back I guess. But I’m still a grandma in the body of a
25 26-year-old so at least that hasn’t changed 🙂
Well, 25, you’ve been fun. My “young twenties” have been pretty incredible actually, but I have a little feeling my “late twenties” are going to be pretty hard to beat!
