Cherry or Berry Muffin Recipe

I wish I could show you a picture of these awesome muffins we fixed for breakfast this morning.
But I can't, because we ate them all very quickly.
But I am happy to share the recipe and put a link with this week's meal plan.

Cherry or Berry Muffin Recipe

2 Cups all purpose flour
2 Cups of oats
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix all those dry ingredients up, then add:

2 cups skim milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Finally, fold in:
4 cups of berries (blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or cherries)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray muffin cups with buttery cooking spray.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake 20 - 25 minutes, or until light golden brown.  This made 24 large muffins.
