Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins


2 cups 500 mL whole wheat flour
1 cup 250 mL wheat germ
6 tsp 30 mL baking powder
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
1 tsp 5 mL salt
2 cups 500 mL oats
4 cups 1000 mLwater
1 cup 250 mL vegetable oil
4 4 eggs
1 cup 250 ml brown sugar
2 tsp 10 mL vanilla extract
2 cups 500 mL frozen blueberries


  1. Mix the oats and water in a large microwavable bowl.
  2. Cook the oats and water mixture in a microwave at full power for ??? minutes.
  3. Allow the cooked oats to cool for 5 minutes. The will continue to cook during this time, so don't skip this step.
  4. Seperately, mix the dry ingrediants. You can do this while the oats are cooling.
  5. After the cooked oats have cooled, mix in the remaining wet ingrediants.
  6. Add the "dry" mixture to "wet" mixture.
  7. Mix in the blueberries. Do not mix too hard or too long or you will crush the blueberries. Mixing with a large spoon by hand is better than mixing with beaters.
  8. Spoon the batter into muffin cups. Fill them mostly full; they will rise but not a lot.
  9. Bake at 400F (205C) for 20 minutes.
  10. When they are done, dump them out onto cookie racks to cool. If you leave them in the muffin cups, they may get a bit soggy.
