I recently found a recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins and I am in love! Always searching for a nutritious breakfast that is low in calories and low in fat, I am happy to say I finally found one. I want to share it with you!
I found this recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins; tweaked it a bit and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
These Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are the answer I have looked for in a yummy, quick breakfast that isn’t full of sugar and fat. I only started eating breakfast a few years ago when I read, over and over again, how important it is in weight loss. In the past, I have had a hard time finding something to eat that I enjoy for breakfast.
Since I was young, I have had breakfast issues.
You see, I don’t like eggs.
Preferring something quick for breakfast and always trying to be more healthy (on a diet, duh!), I have tried protein bars and even though I like them, they usually are full of things I don’t need.
The Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are just the ticket.
There is a particular granola that I love. I enjoy eating it with blackberries and raspberries. I soon discovered it full of sugar. I searched for other granola options but discovered more sugar. I even tried Grape Nuts. Yule Gibbons lied. I tried eating them for a week. I gave up.
I don’t like oatmeal. Too mushy.
Greek yogurt is great for breakfast, with berries. Basically, I love berries. But I needed another option.
Then I found this recipe.
To make them tastier to me, I tweaked the Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins recipe I found and I am so excited to have finally found a breakfast that I can enjoy. No added sugar, except naturally from the berries–and a small amount of dark chocolate.
These muffins call my name in the morning–I now crave the muffins. They taste more like a dessert to me.
These Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins have no flour. No sugar. In fact, they only have oatmeal, berries, egg, vanilla and milk. Kinda.
As a bonus, I add about five morsels of 53% Cacao dark chocolate to each muffin. (there’s the dessert part!)
I am (and have been off and on over the years) on Weight Watchers to be healthier (and to lose weight!) These Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are one point each!
One point each! (yes!)
They taste like a cobbler to me. (okay, so I add a little smidge of margarine on top before heating them!)
I would eat these for breakfast, snack or even dessert. I have even had them for lunch a few times.I would eat these for breakfast, snack or even dessert. I have had them for lunch a few times.… Click To Tweet
They are best right out of the oven…with that smidge of margarine I was telling you about. If I am being bad, I use butter! Butter is better!
In my tweaking, I also discovered if you put a bit of sea salt on top, it brightens up the Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins and they are even better, if that is possible!
Did I mentioned I love berries? I add blackberries to each muffin also and I believe this is why they taste like a cobbler to me.
(NOTE–I also don’t like bananas. There are two ripe bananas in the recipe but you can’t taste them. If you don’t like bananas, don’t let this scare you off!)
