Tasty and healthy
So, after making them as directed, I've hit upon a few tweaks that work better. First, I heat the milk for 1-2 minutes in the microwave and then add to the oats, which soak it up in no time....maybe 20 minutes? Second, I agree they are not sweet, which is actually a good thing since we all need to learn to eat less sugar....In an effort to give a bit more sweetness, I mix one tablespoon of brown sugar, another teaspoon of cinnamon and two tablespoons of walnuts or chopped almonds. I sprinkle this on the top do each muffin gets some crunch and a bit more sweetness and it works great! These freeze great and easily defrost in microwave. They can then be reheated in a toaster over at 350 for ten minutes. Perfect.
Pros: Berries and oats! Can there be a better combo?
Cons: Gotta work around the soaking....
