These beautiful and delicious muffins may just appear to be normal muffins.

But taking a bite inside reveals the truth. What pairs better with a sweet cornmeal and oatmeal muffin better than delicious blackberry jelly/ jam? It's the little hidden surprises that make life great. These muffins are one of them. :)

Blackberry Jam Muffins
Makes 12
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour
½ cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
½ cup buttermilk
1 cup softened cream cheese
1 cup applesauce
¼ cup melted butter
2 eggs
½ cup blackberry jam

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and oil a muffin pan. Using a high speed blender, blend the oats into a flour. Stir the oats, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, flour, salt, and cornmeal together in a large bowl. Use the blender again to blend together all the remaining wet ingredients except for the jam. Add the wet and dry ingredients, stirring until just mixed. Put about 1-2 tablespoons of batter into every muffin hole. Top with 2 teaspoons of jam and a few more tablespoons of batter.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
