We all start off the year with promises to do something better, cut back on something, read more, do more, etc. Well this year we received a VitaMix for Christmas and I intended to blend more, and blend we have been doing. It has been awesome to be able to start off the day with a nice fruity smoothie, because I swear in December I don’t really think I ate too much along the lines of vegetables or fruit. I was pretty much one big mass of sugars, meats & cheeses.
So now with all that frozen fruit hanging around in the freezer it has made it easier to throw together a baked good with some fruits too. Honestly I am not one for too many baked fruits, I don’t like how they can get too mushy or lose their flavor once drowned in too much brown sugar, but the other morning I was pinning some recipes when I came across the recipe for these blueberry citrus muffins. They sounded like the perfect start to a morning to go along with those smoothies and with the added oats in them to fill you up.
If you happen to be on a healthy kick too and find that you have a freezer with some blueberries, please make these muffins. They were delicious and the smell was intoxicating, I would bake these just to have that smell wafting through the house again. The mixture of the orange peel with the cinnamon and bursts of blueberries made these a real treat and bright spot on a dreaded Monday morning, so click on over to get the recipe.
