These healthy blueberry muffins are packed with superfood ingredients, high in protein, and low in sugar, making them a perfect option for breakfast on-the-go!  They are naturally gluten-free (made from oat flour) and sweetened naturally with a touch of honey and some applesauce. Plus, they are super simple to make!

Oh, and did I mention they take LESS THAN 20 MINUTES?! Including baking time.

Add all the wet ingredients to a bowl and whisk, whisk, whisk! Then, gently fold in the wet ingredients. Add a swirl of blueberries on top (or not, its really up to you). Pop immediately into the oven, and in less than 30 minutes you have these! Fresh, warm, sweet-but-not-overly-sweet, bursting-with-juice-bluberry-goodness muffins!

Packed with Superfood Ingredients

Thanks to the juicy blueberries, Greek yogurt, honey, eggs, and the applesauce, these healthy blueberry muffins are pretty moist. Add some oat flour to thicken up the batter, and you’ve got the easiest gluten free muffin recipe ever!

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants

Honey is also rich in antioxidants, and is antibacterial and can help with digestion.

Greek Yogurt adds a serious amount of protein, keeping you full and satisfied for longer.

Oats contain tons of soluble fiber, help control blood sugar levels, and can even help lower cholesterol.



Plus, did I mention that all the ingredients in these muffins are naturally gluten free, and refined sugar free? For a dairy free version, you can add more applesauce in place of the Greek Yogurt. Or you can scroll down for a link to another Dairy Free Blueberry Muffin Recipe I have on my blog – with a refined sugar free streusal topping. Truly delicious!

Adding the blueberry “jam” on top ensures that every muffin has plenty of blueberry goodness, plus adds aesthetic appeal, in my opinion.  To make it, I simply microwaved some frozen blueberries and gently smashed them with a fork and a dash of honey. You can do this with fresh blueberries and/or on the stove top too. Or, simply use store-bought blueberry jam! (I would just look for one that is not loaded with a ton of added sugars).
