My daughter has always loved muffins and she seems to love them more when they have oatmeal in them. I think the oatmeal gives the muffins a texture that is pleasing to her. She has sensory processing disorder and one of the major issues that comes with SPD is food texture issues.
With her food texture issues I am always looking for ways to feed her healthy foods especially berries without having to go ten rounds with a food battle. I try very hard to not make eating a huge deal for her in order to have less stress on her little brain. These Healthy Mixed Berry Muffins make a great breakfast, snack or even perfect to take into the class party or for brunch!
