Summer berry oatmeal muffins has been my go-to recipe lately. Perfect for those lazy weekends, when somethings freshly baked is mandatory with a cup of tea or coffee. What I like most about this recipe it’s its versatility. I have made the muffins with fresh fruit (berries this time), dried fruit, chocolate chips, nuts. Every time they were gone in no time.

Packed with fruit, oats and whole wheat flour, it’s sure to become your favorite muffin recipe. You can double the recipe and freeze some for later, for those mornings when we’re running late, the sweet treat in your lunch box or just as an afternoon treat.

I’ve stumbled upon the recipe a couple of months ago and adapted it several times but I think lately I got it just how I like it. I used whole wheat pastry flour, pulse a couple of times the rolled oats for a finer crumb and almost doubled the amount of fresh fruit.

Just like other muffins, it’s important to have the ingredients at room temperature, except frozen fruit (if that’s what you’re using) and make sure you don’t overmix the batter or the muffins will turn out dry and dense.

    It’s fun to have a go-to recipe that can be adapted in so many ways. There is nothing like freshly baked muffins on the weekend. I can’t wait to try your recipe. Thanks for being a part of Twelve Loaves, Roxy.:)

    I absolutely agree with you Roxana, this recipe is perfect to make all the time with different flavors. But I do love this one! Fresh berries are always exciting to use!

    You bake such beautiful treats! I love the idea of freezing muffins for later. What a nice surprise when we want muffins and have zero time to bake them. :) I cannot wait until there are plenty of fresh berries here! I will try this.

    Oats, buttermilk, and fresh berries = Oh yea!! I always say that buttermilk makes cakes and muffins so moist and I love the flavor it adds too.
