Comeback after 2 years with Blueberry Oats Muffins

Wow! Its been a really long time. So much has changed in these 2+ years that I was away from blogging. I became a mom to a beautiful little girl who is going to be 2 this December and that is the reason I couldn't keep up with my blog. Life just changes after you become a mother and your priorities change. Your whole world revolves around your child, specially when they are this little. First few months after she was born, I didn't even think of trying any new recipes. Of-course when you are sleep deprived, all you can think of is getting a few extra minutes of shut eye. And when I did try something, I didn't have the time to set up, take pictures and post the recipe. But as I said, so much has changed in these 2 years- my little girl is not so little anymore, she has started pre-school, she loves to try my baked goodies and today when I was taking pictures of these mouthwatering Blueberry Oats Muffins, she was sitting right there eating one of those happily and screaming "Smile Cake Smile" at the top of her lungs :))

I hope and I will try to keep up with blogging as often as I can. I can't explain the excitement I am feeling as I type this post.  So, lets get to the recipe for these delicious soft Blueberry muffins with the goodness of Oats. These just came out perfect with a gorgeous golden brown top& moist flavorful inside. We enjoyed these muffins warmed up with a little butter on top along with the Tea.Oh so Yum!
