Oatmeal Brown Sugar and Blueberry Muffins or Baked Oatmeal

Confession… I don’t love oatmeal.

Perhaps it’s the overdone trend of overnight oats, perhaps it’s the fact I don’t opt for instant oatmeal, and perhaps it’s just once you’ve had it a million times it can get boring. Sorry.

However, baked oatmeal or oatmeal muffins, now that’s a different tune.

My favourite way to have a bowl of oats is with brown sugar. Yes, I know it’s sugar and sugar is bad. Ah. However, once in a while adding sugar into your diet is not a sin. I enjoy baking with brown sugar, and I certainly think the combination of oatmeal and brown sugar is one that is a must.

Brown Sugar…mmm mmm mmm

RedPath Sugar was kind enough to send me over a massive box of treats. In it was a bag of their dark brown sugar.  This sugar is rich, decadent, and smells as if heaven rained down a bunch of sweetness directly on top of me. The best part is that this Canadian company ensures that the sugar is sustainably sourced and ethically grown.

When I saw the sugar, I instantly knew I had to make some oatmeal muffins. So here is what I came up with!
