Muffins are the perfect option to enjoy with a cup of coffee or grab and go if you’re in a rush. This easy recipe is a healthy alternative to the high-sugar store bought muffins. Like homemade granola, you can make a batch at the start of the week to enjoy for the next several days.
Healthy Oatmeal and Blueberry Muffins ⚓️
Yields 12 muffins
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)- or fruit of your choice (ie. strawberries, bananas, etc)
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
⅓ cup coconut oil (melted)
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar (or raw sugar)
In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In another bowl, combine the oil, honey or maple syrup. Beat the eggs and add to this mixture. Next, add the yogurt and vanilla.
Mix both bowls together to create a thick batter.
In another small bowl, mix the blueberries with a small amount of flour. The flour prevents the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the batter. Slowly add the fruit to the batter.
Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray or coconut oil. Evenly distribute the batter into each muffin cup. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Let cool.
