Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

We make muffins a lot so I am always trying new recipes. I think with the right ingredients, they are great for a quick morning breakfast with a piece of fruit and the mini ones are perfect as a snack or to add into kid’s lunch boxes. The original recipe was from here, but of course I had to make them even better!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup of unpacked light brown sugar
  • 1/4 c of butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of rolled or old fashion oats
  • 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt (I only had about 1/2 cup of plain, so I also used vanilla. I also think blueberry would work well)
  • 1 T pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 T baking powder

  • 1 t salt
  • 1 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, washed

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray or line muffin tins.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add in the egg and blend well, then add in the oats, yogurt, and vanilla
  3. In separate medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, and nutmeg. Once combined, add to the wet mixture, but do not over mix
  4. Toss blueberries with 1 T of flour then add blueberries into batter and mix in by hand (the batter will be VERY thick)
  5. Spoon batter into muffin tins and bake for about 14 minutes for mini muffins and 18-20 for regular muffins

Using fresh berries makes them ooze with blueberry goodness. Yummm!
