HEART-y Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

POSTED ON February 15, 2013

Can you believe we’re already half way through February – National Heart Healthy Month!?! I love experimenting with new recipes, especially those that include gluten free heart healthy foods. Finding recipes that fit our gluten free needs as well as our on-the-go lifestyle is always hard and this recipe is a perfect fit!

Combine the dry ingredients together.

Enjoy these yummy muffins as part of a high carb snack or breakfast.  It’s also an easy way to get your kids to eat something made with 3 heart healthy foods that tastes great!  The whole family will love these!

HEART-y Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Makes 12

♥ 2 1/2 cups gluten free, old-fashioned rolled oats*
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
♥ 1/4 cup chopped Almonds

Combine the wet and dry ingredients together.

1/4 cup applesauce
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 egg
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
♥ 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen (Would be yummy with apples, pears, or berries too!)**

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place liners in muffin tins.2. Combine oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, almonds and blueberries in a bowl.

3. Whisk together applesauce, almond milk, egg, and maple syrup in a small bowl. Pour into dry ingredients. (NOTE: the “batter” will almost seem soupy. There is no flour to absorb the liquid. Don’t panic, the oats will soak it all up while it’s baking.)

4. Fill lined muffin tins 2/3 full with batter.

5. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until muffins are golden brown on top.

6. Allow to cool a bit before serving. You can store these in the fridge in an air tight container. To freeze, allow muffins to cool completely then store in air tight container in the freezer.



*Non-gluten free oats can be used if available and you’re not avoiding gluten for health reasons.

**The fruit will naturally sweeten the muffins. If you find you want them sweeter, try adding up to 1-2 tablespoons stevia but we enjoy them with just the fruit.

Heidi I made your muffins today and they stuck to the paper liners. Your recipe didn’t say to spray the liners. Do they normally stick or should I have baked them longer. I let mine cook the full 30 minutes and since there was no flour I had no way of telling if they were done. Any tips? Your recipe also doesn’t state how many muffins and I got 17 muffins filling the liners 2/3 full which made them around 85 calories each. Is this correct? Thank you for posting all your great recipes. I am following Chris’s carb cycling and have lost 9 lbs. so far. Very easy to follow but I am always looking for new recipes to keep it from being boring.

Michelle says:

Hi Heidi xx Firstly congratulations!!! What a beautiful addition you have x I’m starting the Turbo cycle and balk at the thought of anything non breakfast for breakfast ie veggies!!! I’m planning on oatmeal or porridge as we call it in the uk and wonder if I could use one of these for my breakfast on either days? Xxx

Stacy says:

How would I incorporate these into a high carb snack or breakfast? How many muffins could I have and what else would I need to eat?

Alison says:

These sound really yummy, but I don’t like make strip..do you have an idea for a substitute that would make them equally good?

Kimberly says:

Tracy says:

How do I keep these from sticking to the paper muffin liners? I feel like I had to bake these forever for them to finally brown and not be so gooey in the middle. Suggestions please?

Joana Bonn says:

Quick question, I am allergic to almonds, what could I substitute the almond ingredients with?

admin says:

You’d need to experiment a little as I’ve not made them any other way.

Jean says:

Just what I’m looking for a good healthy muffin recipe. I wish you would publish a cookbook with more recipe ideas for low carb and high carb days. I’m especially interested in more ways to get my morning vegetables in. Thank you for all the inspiration you and Chris give to others.I am 65 years old and have been trying to loss weight all my life,this diet is finally something I can follow! I have already loss 12 lbs in the first two weeks. Thank you both I am so excited!

Mari says:

Hi, Heidi! I love the recipe, it seems delicious with the blueberries!
Do you think you could tell me the nutritional facts for this recipe?
Also, blueberries are really expensive and hard to find where I live, what fruits do you think I could replace them with?

Thank you so much!

admin says:

You’d have to experiment with different fruits.

Tina Francis says:

I just made these… YUM!!! I love them. Thanks :)

I made this recipe a few days ago. It was delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe with all of us!

Patti Crowell says:

I made the recipe exactly as written, but it made more than 12. Did I do something wrong?

admin says:

Maybe! Give it a try!

TiffanyGrace says:

For a snack would you count this as the carb and still need to eat a protein with it or is this considered a complete snack? If you need a protein with it do you have any suggestions. thanks!
