    What you need:

    • 1 c. flour
    • 1 c. oatmeal
    • 3 tbsp. sugar
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 4 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 c. blueberries, washed
    • 1 egg
    • 1 c. milk
    • ¼ c. vegetable oil
    • nonstick cooking spray

    Equipment and supplies:

    • oven (you'll need help from your adult assistant)
    • mixing spoon
    • 2 large bowls
    • fork
    • muffin/cupcake tin
    • paper muffin/cupcake liners
    • wire rack for cooling muffins
    • measuring cups and spoons

    What to do:

    1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
    2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
    3. Mix in blueberries.
    4. In another bowl, break the egg and use a fork to beat it just a little bit. Then add the milk and vegetable oil, and mix.
    5. Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl.
    6. Using a mixing spoon, mix about 25 or 30 times. Don't mix too much! Your muffin mixture should be lumpy, not smooth.
