Oatmeal Spelt Muffins

A baking project was long overdue. So I made muffins. Oatmeal spelt muffins, to be exact – in blueberry, chocolate and walnut varieties. I have never made muffins from oatmeal before, and I didn’t follow any specific recipe. They turned out just fine – had the perfect moistness inside. (One sampler said a little too moist for her taste, it was fine for me.) So simple to make. So cute.
