Blueberry Oat Muffins

Happy Friday! We had an early wake up call and I am wishing there were more of these muffins to snack on. It is only 7 am and I am on coffee number too and ready for my second breakfast.

This weekend is Father's Day and I think I might be more excited than Mr. J to celebrate. Miss Olivia has been busy shopping for the perfect gift for her Daddy. I am sticking to a card and some yummy food treats. I got a steak request so I think I will need some grill assistance with that one. Do you have any special Father's Day plans?

These blueberry oat muffins pack an extra punch of healthy by having rolled oats and plain Greek yogurt in the ingredient list. They left me feeling full longer than the traditional sugar packed blueberry muffin. Not that I don't want some of those muffins at times too. 

Anyhoo, this was a nice change up to have around. I brought one to work for my mid-morning snack just about every day, while Mr. J enjoyed his as a quick grab and go breakfast first thing. It is kind of crazy how two people can go through 12 muffins so quickly. 

I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day!
