Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins {Dairy Free}



In the quest to be more conscious about what I eat...not only for myself but for my little guy, I'm always on the lookout for healthy, yet delicious recipes.  Thanks to Erinn, I was introduced to these little treats. It's essentially oatmeal-on-the-go which is great for early morning commuting or late afternoon snacking.  

Recipe adapted from the Happy Herbivore

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup fresh blueberries


Preheat oven 350 F. Grease or spray a muffin tin or paper liners if using. In a large bowl, whisk flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices together until well combined. Add applesauce, sugars and maple then stir until almost combined. Add blueberries, stirring until just combined. Spoon into muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle additional oats and brown sugar on top if desired. Bake 18 to 25 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I made these ahead of time so I had breakfast ready to go all week long.  Delish!

  4. Yay! I'm glad Happy Herbivore is spreading (I passed on the info to Erinn via my husband the vegan / plant-strong cook). I don't know that we've tried the chocolate zucchini muffin recipe. That sounds delicious.

    Happy Eating!

  8. Those sound good. I'm now always looking for things I can make in bulk and ahead of time for the week. Do you have any salads or anything you like to eat for lunch that are good put together in advance for the week? I tried the oatmeal protein pancakes that I read about on Honey Were Home, and they are pretty good too.

  10. Today, many women choose lanvin bag, because they

    like the image of a large bag lanvin. If you are not so

    high, you'd better choose a small bag will make you look more slender.

    If you are that high and strong, big bag lanvin handbag is your

    best choice. The big bags distraction so that people will only notice

    your beautiful bag, rather than your body.
