Publix & muffin recipe

Ok, let me just say that I love Publix. I have recently started shopping there because I'm sick and tired of WalMart. In Carrollton, Publix is close to Target so it's perfect.

So, call me a dork but I actually like to grocery shop! I guess maybe it's because I love to cook and bake so much. I like to buy good food and Publix has so much more of it than WalMart. Just their produce alone is 100 times better. I seriously had to restrain myself from buying stuff today. I did let the lady at the bakery talk me into some freshly baked bread. And I might add that it was great with the chicken salad that I made for supper.

Now I know there are better grocery stores out there... Trader Joes, Whole Foods... but when all you're use to is a Piggly Wiggly or WalMart, Publix beats them hands down.

And no, Publix is not paying me for this.. ;)

Luke hates oatmeal. Luke loves muffins! Luckily I found this recipe on and tweaked it a little bit. It's low in sugar & healthy which is what I love. They are really good but if you're looking for that' super sweet, fake blueberry' taste this is definately not the recipe for you. I made these today for the second time and this time added a mashed banana (that was on the verge of yuck!) and Luke gobbled 2 up!! R also ate one and liked it.

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins (12 muffins)
1 1/4 c quick cooking oats
1 c AP flour
1/3 c white sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 c milk
1 egg
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 c frozen blueberries

Combine oats, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in milk, egg and oil. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in blueberries. Pour in greased muffin cups 2/3 of the way full. Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes. YUM!

Glad to know that I am not the only one who loves Publix! The penny coupons on Sundays and Mondays are too cool...only a mom/wife would say that :)!!
