Less sugar is a good thing! And these Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins have less sugar & coconut sugar!
Yum! As a mamma I wanted to make some blueberry muffins for my little fella who eats so many blueberries I often think I’m going to wake up to a blueberry. I knew that he would love a good blueberry muffin! So I was on a mission to make some somewhat healthy muffins for the family. After several attempts to make a gluten free muffins, only to throw away the batch. I gave up on gluten free, and came up with this recipe. It is far from gluten free, but much better than sugary muffins you would by at most of our local stores.
These are not the super sweet Costco muffins that I am sure you have had before. They are much more like your grandma’s somewhat wholesome muffins from childhood! So here you are, they are not completely healthy, but a great alternative to any kind of store bought muffin.
I used coconut sugar and pear juice as the sweetening agents in this recipe. I also added a couple of drops of lemon essential oil for some citrus zest! Of course, the oats help make them more “stick to your ribs” robust too, adding another element of nutrition!
This recipe yields 12 muffins and they are easy to make!
How do you make them?
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 3/4 cups of oats
- 1/2 cup half & half
- 1/2 cup of pear juice
- 1/2 coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup of real butter
- 1 Tbsp. of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- pinch of cinnamon
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 2 drops of lemon essential oil, you could even add three if you love lemon!
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (bake for 15-18 minutes).
- If you don’t use cupcake covers, grease your muffin tin with some butter.
- In your mixer add all ingredients, except frozen blueberries (make sure the butter is soft).
- Mix all ingredients together for about 1-2 minutes.
- Lastly, toss blueberries in some flour and then fold into your dough.
Bake away! I would put your kitchen timer on for 14 minutes. Every oven cooks differently. You can stick a knife in the middle to make sure they cooked to perfection. I would stay closer to the 15 minute mark. Enjoy!
