You might recall that our family recently travelled through Northern Ontario. While we were driving along the winding highway I noticed that at certain spots groups of cars were pulled onto the shoulder – people were walking through the bushes at the side of the highway. As I was wondering what in the world the people could possibly risk pulling off the highway for, I noticed that one woman was carrying a bowl. Inside the bowl were wild blueberries. Ah-ha! Wild blueberries are like gold…so delicious and fresh tasting. I totally understood these peoples’ passion. When we got home from our vacation I knew that I had to get some Ontario blueberries and do some baking. I discovered this healthy blueberry oatmeal muffin recipe on the Life Made Delicious website and I have to say the muffins are fabulous. Easy to make and so tasty. I love indulging in seasonal fruits and I love it when eating healthy tastes so good.
