Healthy Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Lately, I've experimenting with healthy options for snacks and some main courses. I know, it is very difficult especially that we love salty, oily food and not much into fruits and vegies. But then I decided, we are not getting any younger so better add some nutritious food in our menu. :)

Luckily, we found some cheap, organic blueberries in the grocery just recently. I love blueberries and aside from my daily smoothies I want to try another way of eating those lovely berries.

With some available ingredients in my fridge, I came up with a good idea of baking muffins. Fortunately, it was incredibly tasty and filled with healthy ingredients.

  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 3 pieces ripe bananas

  1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas.
  3. Add the egg, melted butter, milk and yogurt. Mix all together, set aside.
  4. In a seperate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients except for the blueberries.
  5. Add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet mixture. Mix all together.
  6. Once completely incorporated, fold in the blueberries.
  7. Fill 3/4 of paper liners in the muffin pan with the batter.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until very lightly browned on the edges. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Allow the muffins to cool completely.
  9. Serve and enjoy!
