Tasty Tuesday: Lemon-Blueberry Oat Muffins

Back in July, I posted a recipe called The Best Blueberry Muffins. I was mistaken. I have since found a blueberry muffin recipe that I enjoy even more than those and have decided that they are now the SECOND Best Blueberry Muffins. Here are the BEST blueberry muffins:

Lemon-Blueberry Oat Muffins
Not my photo
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour*
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 egg white
1 cup fat-free milk
2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, melted
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries*

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, softened

In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, combine the egg, egg white, milk, butter, lemon peel, and vanilla; mix well. Add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in berries. Coat muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or use paper liners; fill two-thirds full with batter. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400 for 20-22 minutes or until top is lightly browned and springs back when lightly touched. Cool 5 minutes; remove to wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.

*Note: I use whole-wheat flour, frozen blueberries, and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice instead of the peel, because I don't keep lemons stocked in my fridge. I have not tried these muffins made as directed, so I don't know if my substitutions change anything.


  1. These sound really good! I'll have to put frozen blueberries on my shopping list and try these. Thanks for sharing!

  2. They are really yummy! And I think I was wrong on how much lemon juice I use. I think that I may use 1/2 tsp instead.... 1/4 doesn't seem like enough thinking back.

  3. Those are some beautiful and tasty looking muffins. A basket of those on the breakfast table is sure to make everyone smile. I have a sweet treat linky party on my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link your muffins up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com
