From the back of the Quaker Oat Bran hot cereal box. These are not indulgent, fluffy muffins by any means, but tasty little healthy ones! They make a nice healthy breakfast or snack - I usually make them as a nutritious snack to take along when we are going to be gone and active all day, as they hold up well when wrapped and tossed into tote bags, backpacks, picnic baskets, etc. I usually make mine with the raisins, but I'm sure the blueberries would taste good, too.
