After testing a recipe for my review of Bake With Josh which did not work out perfectly I decided to make Blueberry Oat Muffins. I prefer to see the blueberries on top of the muffins rather than have them in the batter. This way they create a jammy like texture to the muffins.
Head straight on to the recipe for Blueberry Oat Muffins ♥
On the 1st of September I had blog posts scheduled until Wednesday the 28th. I could go no further than that for the month as one recipe needed to be made again, and the other was for a challenge. Not having any posts scheduled for October was most unusual for me given how much travelling we do. I like to be a month ahead of myself and by the time we got back from overseas I was not even a day ahead. This clearly showed in my recipe for black garlic aïoli where my photographs suffered. Basically, I was burnt out. The last time this happened I reduced my posting from every day of the week to the schedule I had in September. We got back from overseas late on a Saturday night and the following week I made a cake to serve as dessert.

I also partook in a challenge which saw me racing against the clock, only to have the posting date pushed forward. The day our lovely house guests left to go home I lay down on the couch and slept until Dave got back from work. The desire to create a recipe for the blog, let alone cook supper had deserted me. And then we watched MasterChef The Professionals and the inspiration slowly crept back. I have set myself a task of creating 3 recipes a week. And I have changed my posting schedule. I am hoping by tackling this in small doses I will be ahead of myself enough to get me through to December where I will have the time to work on my recipe development at my own pace.

These muffins sound fantastic Tandy.
Have a beautiful weekend.
🙂 Mandy xo
Thanks Mandy, I was in your neck of the woods this weekend 🙂
They look so yummy, I would love to eat few of them, cos blueberry muffins are my fav:)
Mine too Natalia 🙂
This look like the best blueberry muffins I have ever seen! Bar none. I too, agree, the blueberries should be bursting on top of the muffin, that is the way I like them too. Would love one of these right now so perhaps my 4 year old will help me whip some up today after I put my 6 year old on the bus!
I would love to come over and bake with you and your kids Laura 🙂
Love how beautifully these muffins are bursting with blueberry goodness. I bet oats and blueberry go well together.
They do indeed 🙂
I need to work on scheduling posts more – I usually wait till the last minute – by the way, Tandy, these muffins sound delicious!
Thanks Shashi 🙂
Ah yes, I know that tune of keeping up, or trying, with posting schedules lol. And I LOVE blueberry muffins so yum!
Thanks Evelyne 🙂
It’s very admirable that you post one month in advance. I find that very hard to do but it would be wonderful!
If I can get back to that it will be more than wonderful 🙂
I laughed at your comment about the muffins not quite being right. I always use the same basic muffin recipe and adapt but recently tried a different recipe. Everything seemed fine but the bake time was wrong – 12 instead of 25 mins. Luckily I had enough skill to realise this was incorrect and have added my own errata to the page but a novice may not have had as much success as you or I. Hope the new post schedule suits you and you can settle into it.
I am still not settled in but hopefully that will change before it is too late and I have nothing left to share 🙂
