Blueberry Oatmeal Yogurt Muffins

Sometimes around this time of year, you just want to amp up the healthy eating. These muffins are perfect for that - full of fiber and protein, they make a delicious breakfast or morning snack, with virtually no guilt involved. They also keep well in the freezer so you can have a good, healthy breakfast at your fingertips.

You won't even need a mixer for this - just a sturdy wooden spoon. Start by combining the oats, sugar,

flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a measuring cup, combine the melted butter, eggs, yogurt

and vanilla and whisk until combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry,

and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in the blueberries.

Scoop the batter into 12 paper-lined or greased muffin cups.

1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt
2 eggs, lightly beaten

  1. You caught me on a day when I was hungry and I had all the ingredients to make this in the house. I got started as soon as I saw your post and they are in the oven now. I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with all of the yogurt in the fridge from my mother and mother in law's visit. I decided to go with mixed berry muffins because they are one of my husband's favorite and I used blackberry and strawberry yogurt. I can't wait to find out how they turn out. I am going to post my version on my blog and I will have lots of links back to your blog and recipe. I can't wait to check out some more recipes. I am your newest follower :)
