Hearty, wholesome & flavorful with a crumbly buttery topping — this is what muffin dreams are made of! While these muffins were originally inspired by fresh summer berries, they can be made using either fresh or frozen berries making them perfect for all year round. The inside is soft and tender with oats and whole wheat pastry flour. If you’re gluten-free or prefer other flours, substitutions can easily be made, too!
Chocolate chip muffins made in a smaller size for snacking, grab-and-go bites, or as a yummy addition to breakfast or lunch.
