Blueberry Oatmeal Morning Muffins

February 1, 2018

My family LOVES Blueberry Muffins, but usually they end up being quite indulgent and a special treat for the weekends. In an effort to make a slightly better “good for you” blueberry muffin, I swapped out the white flour for whole wheat flour, reduced the sugar, and included plain Greek yogurt in the batter. The crumb topping is optional (but hard to resist!). I also always swap vanilla extract for almond extract when making Blueberry Muffins – it’s simply a family preference! These are great to make a big batch of and freeze to enjoy throughout the week.

Blueberry Oatmeal Morning Muffins

  • Author: kelsey nixon
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

Crumb topping

  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened


Preheat oven to 400° F. Place 12 muffin-cup liners in muffin cups. Lightly spray liners with cooking spray.

Whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl until combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together butter, yogurt, milk, sugar, oil, egg, and almond extract in a bowl. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Divide batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups.

Make crumb topping: Combine oats, sugar, cinnamon, and flour in a bowl. Cut in softened butter with a fork. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffins. Bake at 400° F for 15-18 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool muffins in pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
