My Good Mornin' Muffin! Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins






Is it wrong that I'm actually eating one of these right now while posting? Haha! These puppies are so good, and not to mention super healthy! I'm a sweet addict, and working in the corporate world, there are always donuts, brownies, bagels, muffins, cookies, everything floating around the office somewhere. I find it so hard to stay on track with my healthy lifestyle, when there is pretty much free food everywhere you turn. Not just some McDonald's were talking about here...but really good catered food! But not to worry, I've found this recipe a long time ago via Skinnytaste , and completely forgot I saved it! I find that I need something that's healthy, but something I can also grab and go because I'm on the move so much, yet still caters to my "sweet" liking. : )


Good Mornin Muffin! Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins



Serving Size: 1 Muffin ( 127 Calories)
  • 3/4 cups Quaker quick oatmeal
  • 1/2cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Olive Oil Spray ( I used PAM)





Directions:

-Preheat oven to 400°.
-Line a muffin tin with liners and lightly spray with olive oil.
-Place oats in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds.
-Soak oats in milk for about 30 minutes.  (Oats will soak up milk, will look goey and thick when finished)
-In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, sugar, vanilla, egg whites, oil and mix until combined.
-In a third bowl combine whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and whisk to combine.
-Combine oats and milk with sugar, with egg 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. 

Boom!

The recipe called for unsweetened applesauce, but low and behold I forgot to buy it while shopping for my ingredients at the grocery store. But I Googled substitutes, and turns out you just need to up the ante on the whatever "sweetener" your using. I wanted to still keep the recipe low cal, and healthy, so I just used more blue berries : )

Thanks Gina for this super breakfast/snack option, that's super good, but still healthy!
