Easy Berry & Oat Muffin Recipe

I think muffins must be one of the best things to cook with kids, they are great as morning and afternoon tea snacks, perfect for lunch boxes, freeze for later, and involve lots of mixing – which has to be my preschooler’s favourite part of helping to cook! These Berry & Oat Muffins include two of our favourite superfoods – berries and oats, are deliciously moist thanks to the inclusion of sour cream, and involve the perfect amount of mixing – at least according to my four year old!
