No oil, no butter... This muffin makes me feel not guilty about having more than just one. They are great to grab and go for a quick breakfast. The oats and Greek yogurt will keep you feeling full. Enjoy fresh from the oven or cool completely, store in an airtight container for 2 days, or pack away and freeze.

Instructions Checklist

  • Whisk 2 cups flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • Whisk Greek yogurt, eggs, applesauce, brown sugar, water, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl.

  • Toss blueberries with 1 teaspoon flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.

  • Fold flour mixture into the Greek yogurt mixture. Fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup 3/4 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

It is really important to not overmix the batter; lumps are okay.

Use fresh or frozen blueberries or try another berry.

You can also play around with the flavors of Greek yogurt. Substitute milk for the water if preferred.

Super yummy, moist and delicious. I cut the recipe in half and it still made 9 muffins. Not too sweet...just right! Shared with the office and they raved about them. Read More

I did make a few changes. I only had Old Fashioned Oats. I added one ripe banana and decreased BB to 1 cup. After reading comments I grated lemon peel and skipped water and used lemon juice. Also added cinnamon and a little nutmeg. Alas, I found them a little dull too. I do agree they need more sugar. So I sprinkled some on the tops of others. I needed much more time for mine to cook. Not sure if it was bc of changes or my oven. I would make them again. Just need a bit more sweetness. Read More

Made these muffins yesterday they are easy and turned out nice but the flavour was lacking. Likely this is because of the yogurt. If I make this recipe again I will add lemon zest. Read More

Followed recipe exactly and they were very bland. No go from the entire family. Needs butter and sugar or something! Read More

I had to make one change - we don't eat quick-cooking oats so I used old fashioned oats instead. This gave the muffins a nice chewiness. But I agree with one reviewer that the muffin is pretty bland I could actually taste the flour in one blueberry-less bite. And I even added the cinnamon that another reviewer suggested. Maybe add nuts? I think oranges would be a good complementary taste so orange zest? The texture was light and fluffy and that s after I failed to notice the do-not-overmix warning. Read More
