Are Baked Oatmeal Muffin Cups, Oatmeal Or Muffins?
Both are correct. These are oatmeal and a muffin. You will notice that they’re not light and fluffy like a pastry shop muffin. They’re hearty and dense like a bowl of oatmeal, but more convenient.
Ingredients In Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
You need 11 simple ingredients for my baked oatmeal cups. Each is important!
- Oats: Old-fashioned whole rolled oats work best for this recipe.
- Salt: Salt adds flavor.
- Baking Powder: Baking powder prevents the oatmeal cups from tasting too dense.
- Milk: Unsweetened vanilla almond milk will soften the oats and help make these muffins moist. I like using almond milk, but any milk will work.
- Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt adds protein and takes the place of butter or oil. You can use mashed banana or applesauce instead of Greek yogurt for a dairy free option, but you won’t get that extra boost of protein.
- Eggs: Provide protein and structure.
- Lemon juice + zest: Fresh lemon gives these oatmeal muffin cups a lovely lemon flavor.
- Monk fruit: Monk fruit sweetens and flavors these baked oatmeal cups. If preferred, coconut sugar is a great substitute.
- Blueberries: Stir in blueberries for plenty of antioxidants and natural sweetness and flavor.
- Sliced almonds: Almonds provide a nice crunch and even more nutrients. To make these nut-free, you can leave them out.
How Do You Make Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins?
What’s better than an easy one bowl recipe that comes together super quick?! To make these baked oatmeal cups, simply add all of the ingredients – oatmeal, salt, baking powder, almond milk, Greek yogurt (or mashed banana or applesauce), eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, monk fruit (or another sugar) to a bowl.
Mix everything together until you’ve got a rich, hearty batter, then stir in the blueberries and almonds. Divide the batter evenly in a 12-cup muffin pan.
Pop the muffin pan in your 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is just slightly golden. Let them cool and then enjoy!
Baked Oatmeal Cup Variations
We all crave a little variety sometimes. Try these different flavor and add-in options!
- Flavor: Instead of lemon juice and zest, give orange juice and zest a whirl.
- Fruit options: Instead of blueberries, you could use cranberries, raspberries or chopped strawberries.
- Mix-in options: Add some mini chocolate chips, unsweetened shredded coconut or dried fruit for a fun twist.
