BAKED BLUEBERRY LEMON OATMEAL CUP RECIPE
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup plain greek yogurt (or apple sauce)*
2 pastured eggs, beaten
2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 + 2 tablespoons monk fruit**
3/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Preheat over to 350 degrees F.
Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or coat with coconut oil or butter to ensure nothing sticks.
In a large bowl combine oats, salt and baking powder and gently toss together.
Next, mix in milk, greek yogurt, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice and monk fruit and stir together until everything is incorporated and you have a rich, thick batter.
Add in the blueberries and almonds and stir until just combined.
Evenly divide the oat mixture between all 12 muffin cups and pop in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the muffins are set through and lightly golden brown on the top.
Cool completely before removing muffins from the pan and enjoy!
I like to store these muffins in an airtight container in the fridge where they will happily last up to one week.
To reheat the muffins, you can slice them in half and place them in the toaster oven or pop them in the microwave for 20-40 seconds.
*You can sub in applesauce or mashed banana for the milk dairy, if you want to keep the oat cups gluten free.
**Monk fruit is a plant-derived, calorie free sweetener. This is the one I am using. If you prefer, you can sub in coconut sugar (or really any granted sugar) in it’s place.
