These Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are a healthier and lighter version of a basic, traditional Blueberry Muffin Recipe. Still moist and delicious.

I like to make a big batch and freeze some so I’ll have a quick and healthy breakfast on hand whenever I’m feeling too tired (or lazy) to cook. They are also great to give to my toddler for a tasty and healthy breakfast on the go.

I’ve seen a lot of variations of these blueberry muffins with nuts or icing added, but in order to keep it diet friendly, I stuck to the basics. Plus, I often enjoy a simple muffin without too many ingredients. Occasionally, I’ll add a tablespoon of flaxseed Powder for some added health benefits.

This is really a deliciously healthy and easy muffin recipe to add to your collection, and it’ll satisfy your blueberry muffin craving.

P.S. They go great with a bit of Brummel & Brown Yogurt Spread! Yum!

As an avid Weight Watchers follower, I have learned so many helpful tips and tools over the years that I am eager to share.


  1. These are a great muffin to make and freeze so that you can whip a couple out and defrost on busy mornings. I did make a few changes based on other people’s comments – I used 2 real eggs instead of egg substitute, I added 1/4 cup of sugar free applesauce to combat the dryness others mentioned, I added 1/4 of sugar to sweeten them up, I only added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg since someone mentioned it could be overpowering, and lastly I added 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed meal. When I re-calculated the points based on my changes, these still weigh in at 4 per muffin. My kids think they are delicious and ask for them for dessert!

  2. These were pretty good. This was my first time making a “healthy” or WW muffin. They were a little denser than I’m used to, but they were pretty tasty. I used more blueberries than were called for and thought they were sweet enough. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Hi I made these before but thought the nutmeg was too much, and needed to be a little sweeter… any suggestions that won’t impact the points?

  4. It makes me laugh how often you mention Brummel & Brown Yogurt Butter, because I sing it’s praised to friends all the time!  People probably get tired of me talking about it :)

    • I know, right?! You’s swear I own that company or something! I’m OBSESSED with the stuff!
