How to Make Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
Gather your ingredients and add the oats and buttermilk to a bowl. Let the oats soak for 1 hour.
In a large bowl mix together butter, brown sugar, and egg with an electric mixer.
In a separate bowl whisk together all dry ingredients.
Combine the egg mixture and oats with the dry mixture. Do this with a spatula or spoon to be sure not to over mix.
Lastly, fold in your blueberries, careful not to burst any of them.
Spoon into muffin cups lined with parchment paper or baking cups.
Bake for 20-22 minutes until golden brown.
Let the muffins finish cooling on a wire rack.
How to Store Leftover Muffins
Store leftover muffins in an airtight container for up to 4 days. These muffins can also be frozen. Store in a freezer bag and microwave for 15-20 seconds to thaw when ready to enjoy!
Tips for Perfect Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
- Once the muffins are done let cool for 1 minute in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. This helps prevent soggy muffins.
- Do NOT over mix the batter. When mixing in the dry ingredients, mix until just combined. It’s ok if there are a few streaks of flour. This helps the muffins rise and stay fluffy.
- No buttermilk? No problem! Try these vegan blueberry muffins instead, no buttermilk required!

. I use dates and reduce the sugar. I also use walnuts and self rising flour.
I really wish I’d trusted my instinct that 1 tsp of salt would be more than I enjoy. My favorite (comparable) muffin recipes have 1/4-1/2 tsp of salt, and I’ll definitely cut it in half next time.
I made these using my new favorite trick — portioning batter into muffin cups and freezing raw, then baking from frozen for fresh muffins on a busy morning. Worked great!
Thank you so much for the feedback! I really appreciate it!
Yummy, yum. I certainly want to make this for the kids. We are heading to board exams for the teens and will need mindful snacks.
I’m on a bit of a baking buzz these days with my daughter so guess what we will be whipping up this weekend 😉
Perfectly moist and loaded with blueberries . So Delicious! Makes a great choice for on the go breakfast or snack.
My family just loves these muffins. The blueberry oat combination is a winner! I love to make these and freeze half for busy weekday mornings!
