  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Direction:

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Then grease the muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk your rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together. Then stir in your pecans, dates, and dried cranberries.
  3. In a different bowl, whisk the butter, egg, buttermilk and vanilla together.

Sometimes we could all benefit from a little bit more zest in our life—quite literally. This recipe hits the mark! Plus the blueberries come in at the end to provide a nice antioxidant boost to the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Grated zest and juice from 1 orange
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 stick (melted and cooled) butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries

Direction:

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees, and then immediately butter your muffin pan (just as you’ve done for all prior recipes).
  2. Now pour your juice from 1 orange along with enough buttermilk to make 1 cup’s worth of liquid total in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Next it’s on to whisking in the eggs, honey and 1 stick of melted butter.
  4. With your large bowl, rub your sugar and orange zest together until you pick up on a pronounced zesty smell, and the sugar is moist. Whisk in your flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Then it’s a matter of melding together your dry and wet ingredients with a spatula (wooden or rubber).
  6. Stir in your blueberries, and then simply pour enough of the mixture into each cup of the baking pan so that they’re filled up to the top.
  7. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes.
