Baked Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal Muffin Cups

Baked Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal Muffin cups make for a healthy way to start the day. They’re hearty and delicious, free of all refined flours and sugars and perfect for meal prep.  These nutritious are easy to make (only uses one bowl) and will quickly become a family favorite.

Think of these of these baked blueberry lemon oatmeal cups as a muffin on a mission. They are dense, hearty and lightly sweetened, providing you with a muffin you can feel good about eating for breakfast.

If this recipe seems familiar, it’s because they are a slight twist on my baked apple oatmeal cups, which have become a reader favorite (I’ve also shared my banana chip oatmeal muffin cups and my pumpkin spice oatmeal muffin cups).

Not surprising, that everyone loves the baked muffin cups so much, they are easy to make, super delicious and rather convenient as well.

One thing you’ll probably notice right off the bat as well is 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.

How To Make Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal Cups

What’s better than an easy one bowl recipe that comes together fast.  Just add all of the ingredients – oatmeal, salt, baking powder, almond milk, plain greek yogurt*, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, monk fruit** to a bowl.

Mix everything together until you’ve got a rich, hearty batter, then stir in blueberries and almonds. Divide the batter evenly between 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!

*You can sub in applesauce or mashed banana for the milk dairy, if you want to keep the oat cups gluten free.

**Monk fruit is a plant-derived, calorie free sweetener.  This is the one I am using.  If you prefer, you can sub in coconut sugar (or really any granulated sugar) in it’s place.

***I like to store these muffins in an airtight container in the fridge where they will happily last up to one week. 

****To reheat the muffins, you can slice them in half and place them in the toaster oven or pop them in the microwave for 20-40 seconds.
