Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners. Whisk the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl.

  • Mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the egg mixture. Stir until just combined. Gently fold in the blackberries. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin cups, and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Cook's Note

Also a great way to use up extra berries. Just throw in what you have, you don't need to limit yourself to blackberries. Blueberries, raspberries, or even cut-up strawberries work fine. The brown sugar can be reduced, or even omitted if you prefer a less sweet muffin.

After reading reviews (dry muffins)and having made muffins with oats as an ingredient (DRY) I made these with the following modifications and they came out very moist and delicious. I cut the oats to 1/2 a cup and added 3/4 a cup more of fresh blackberries and 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips. Baking time was 17 min in my oven. YUMMY! Read More

Made the recipe exactly as written. It's a very thick batter and the muffins although moist were very dense. Did not get even a hint of the pumpkin pie spice which I thought was going to put this one over the top. My apologies to the recipe writer because I know this had all 5-star ratings but we were disappointed. Read More

With a few tweaks these are fantastic! I use quick oats instead of rolled oats. I added 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce and doubled the vanilla to 2 tsp. I made my own spice mix (cinnamon nutmeg ginger clove) and added about 2 tsp to the mix. In addition to the 1 1/2 cups of blackberries I added 1/2 cup chopped strawberries. This made a moist not to sweet muffin bursting with berry flavor! YUM. Read More
