Farmhouse Rice PuddingBlueberry Banana Oatmeal Muffins
by Irish American Mom, Mairead Geary

I know muffins are not typically Irish, but I add some good Irish oatmeal to these blueberry-banana muffins, which definitely gives them an Irish twist. Muffins are my favorite, easy, grab-and-go breakfast at the weekend. I love to whip up a batch on Friday evening, to make sure I get a head start on Saturday morning mayhem, which usually reigns supreme in our house.
