Power Blueberry and Oatmeal Muffins

Greek yogurt, blueberries, and oatmeal will have you a POWER breakfast. These muffins are packed with goodness from the greek yogurt, the fresh berries, and the power boost with whole oats. Fresh blueberries are best, but if it’s ‘off season’ you can always get frozen berries and thaw them out. I would recommend straining them and dusting them with flour or sugar so they don’t clump together. The oatmeal gives the muffins a great texture and adds some fiber, powering you through the morning.
