Pinterest can be fun! We all know we spend WAYYY too much time on there. However I have found a few good things!

For example I found these:

 

They looked pretty good, but so do most picture people take right?! Anyways I was bored on Sunday and wanted to bake. Not just cookies or something terrible, but something a little different! (Don’t get me wrong.. I made cookies too!)

So I made these.  Here is the recipe from Domesticated Academic:

  • 2 c. AP flour
  • 1 c. Oatmeal (I used regular not quick oats. – either should work)
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 oz honey nonfat greek yogurt (2 of the little cups)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted & cooled
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 c blueberries

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350F

2. Coat muffin tins with liners or spray

3. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together.

4. Combine wet ingredients in a bowl and mix together.

5. Add wet to dry ingredients. Gently fold in blueberries

6. Spoon into muffin tray and bake 20-25 mins.

Here is everything mixed up:

Then scooped into the muffin tins. I filled mine pretty full and STILL got 16 muffins. Pretty good deal!

Then twiddle your thumbs and play on facebook and twitter for about 21 minutes…

And they are done! I think they look pretty amazing!!

Let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes so they are easier to get out. I didn’t user liners.

You can eat them immediately, but I also have reheated in the micro for a bit and they are yummy! The finished muffins:

I have to say these are really good. I haven’t done the full nutrition on them and they aren’t likely super great, but they definitely have way more protein than anything out of a box mix! I am really enjoying eating one with my breakfast every day. It has helped me stay full longer for sure!

Give them a try if you have the ingredients! I’ll be making more for sure as blueberries come into season!!
