Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Since my SIL's shower started mid morning, I went the brunch route for the menu items. No brunch of mine is complete without muffins obviously and I was aiming to have a good mix of decadent AND healthy items on the menu. These blueberry oatmeal muffins were our healthier muffin, while these Nutella stuffed muffins were the more decadent, thank you to another sweet host (Hi Rachael!) for making those yummies!

Now back to these blueberry ones, WOW, they taste SO good. They don't taste nearly as healthy as they are. I'm so glad I have a few of these bad boys leftover that I can freeze and enjoy later on for breakfast in the coming weeks.

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins slightly adapted from Skinnytaste.com


1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk 
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
baking spray


Preheat oven to 400°. Line a muffin tin with liners and lightly spray with oil or spray muffin tin with spray if not using liners.

Soak oats in milk for about 30 minutes.  

In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, honey, apple sauce, vanilla, egg whites, oil and mix well.

In a third bowl combine whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and whisk to combine.

Combine oats and milk with sugar, applesauce mixture and mix well. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Fold in blueberries.

Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for 22-24 minutes.

P.S. My other go to blueberry muffin recipe is this one that uses Greek yogurt!
