I’m super excited to host my first ever link party for you all! I know it will take a while to get going good but please link whatever recipe you choose and put the button or Sunday Spotlight Recipes title with a link back on your post. Pass along to your friends that you linked up here at you made that and let’s enjoy a variety of great recipes.
My recipe for the Sunday Spotlight Recipes is this berry oat nut muffins. Who wouldn’t love a basket of warm muffins on the weekend, heck any day would be great for me. These muffins are healthier than most muffins because of the whole rolled oats ,wheat flour and egg whites. They can be made even healthier if you used less sugar and less oil but my blackberries were on the tart side so mine need the sugar. I have a ton of frozen blackberries from last Summer so using black berries in muffins was the prefect answer. This recipe is pretty versatile, you can use any type of berries or even dried ones too, so play around with different flavors. The addition of almond extract gives these muffins a great taste and doesn’t compete with the pecan nuts.

Step 1: In a large bowl put first six ingredients in and stir.
Step 2: In a small bowl mix together the wheat flour and remainder ingredients except blackberries.
Step 3: Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until moistened. Fold in blackberries.
