Hello friends! It’s Ashley here from The Recipe Rebel and today we’re all about getting back to routine after all the Christmas cookies, parties and holiday feasts.

When we’re talking about eating healthier, I like to start with breakfast.

Getting a good hearty breakfast in the morning is so important, and these Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins have so much to offer!

They are super moist, and loaded with blueberries. They’re made with soaked oats, which gives them such a great texture and also bumps up the protein and fiber along with all of the other great things oats have to offer.

But seriously?

These muffins are a hole-in-one when it comes to a grab and go food.

If you’re looking for more unique ways to get your daily dose of oatmeal, check out these Banana Oatmeal Muffins or these Banana Oatmeal Pancakes — they are both great ways to start your day!

Tips for making these Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins:

  • Feel free to swap out the fruit — add in other berries, finely chop some apples or cherries, or mix and match to make your own favorite combination.
  • I use quick cooking oats in my oatmeal muffins because I find they still give that hearty texture of oats, but don’t end up too chunky. It is fine if you swap the quick cooking oats for rolled oats, but the texture will be more noticeable. This recipe will not work with steel cut oats.
  • You can pour the batter right into a greased muffin pan, use silicone muffin cups, or paper liners — all will work but they all work differently. If you liked browned edges, opt for a greased muffin pan. If you like easiest removal, opt for silicone (go with a muffin pan with no ridges). Paper liners work as well, but you will need to wait for them to cool completely before they can be removed from the liners, and I’m not really into waiting 😉

  1. I am interested in the Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins recipe. What if I would like to make this with the Old Fahioned Oatmeal rather than the instant oatmeal. Also, could I substitute white flour for the wheat flour. I appreciate your response to my email

    1. Hi Judi,

      This sounds great! Let me know how you like it and if it turned out the way you are hoping for. Thanks so much for choosing one of my recipes! XOXO

    Hi, have just made your Blueberry Oatmeal muffins and they are delicious. I have noticed however, that the ingredient list includes canola oil but is not in the instructions as to when to add. I assume it is at the beginning with the other wet ingredients. This recipe is a keeper. Thank Alyssa. Best part is only had to convert the oven temperature to Celsius as I am in Australia.
