Oat and Almond Blueberry Muffins {vegan, oil-free, flourless}

Warning: these muffins are addictive.

Kevin and I have already eaten our way through four of them in one day. Because they are so healthy, too, we’re telling ourselves we did for medicinal purposes. (I promptly zipped up the remainder and plunked into the deep-freezer).

Blueberries were on sale for a dollar a package at our local Kroger, so I bought a ridiculous (according to Kevin) amount. I’ve been gobbling the plain, in yogurt, for breakfast, lunch and snacks, and with a bit of cream and sugar, for dessert. But I switched into baking mode to use up a few more, in part because I have guests arriving on the 4th; I thought I’d get some advance prep done while I’m in the mood (we have a Texas-size deep-freezer, and I know from experience that these muffins freeze very well in heavy freezer bags).

Happy baking!

Mercy! Yes, let's talk before you go! Pasadena is a family haunt: that's where my grandparents lived when I was growing up, and I was just there again last August. So much beauty, not to mention extensive yumminess to be found. And I love the Huntington!!! Have a great time!

What a healthy muffin recipe :)...I'm slowly trying to use more whole grains like oats into my baking. Just last week, I made some chocolate chip cookies oat flour- couldn't taste the difference!

P.s. the homemade cliff bars idea is really great!

I wonder just how many muffin "templates" you have in your brilliant, creative brain.

We're off to L.A., Pasedena to be specific. I'm researching 18th c. letters in the huntington (and i really need to email you with this nonsense, as to not clog up the comment section).
