"I went through a period where I was constantly making muffins. I honestly can't remember if I made these before or not, but if I did, it was long ago. While the ingredient list is long, just about everything can be found in most pantries."

We loved these hearty muffins. My husband loves anything blackberry, so I'm always looking for recipes to make for him. I'm glad that I found this delicious recipe. The oats added a wonderful heartiness and chewiness that we really enjoyed. I used a large duck egg and Penzey's apple pie spice. Also, I didn't use the stated amount of granulated sugar for the tops of the muffins. A scant spoonful of sugar on each was plenty for us. I will be definitely making these again.
