Microwave Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are warm, tasty, and the perfect thing for a busy morning since they are ready in less than five minutes. We are always on the look out for fast and healthy breakfast options since no matter how hard we try, mornings are hectic. Recently I stumbled across these oatmeal microwave muffins and ever since have been obsessed. They are a cross between a baked oatmeal and a muffin, but are ready in 3 minutes in the microwave. That's a winning breakfast around here. Easy, delicious, and good-for-you.
Since microwaves can vary a lot when it comes to cooking time, the first couple of times you cook these be prepared to experiment with the cooking time. We have a really strong microwave, so mine cook up in 2 minutes 15 seconds. But I know for some people they may take up to 4 minutes or so. Just start off with 2 minutes and add time in 30 second intervals until your muffin is puffed up and cooked through. There also can be some variation if you decide to mix up the toppings or use frozen berries. They require a little extra cooking time.
Now where the real fun begins when it comes to these microwave muffins is with the toppings. You can get really creative here and add in all kinds of delicious things for these Microwave Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins:
- Switch out the blueberries for raspberries, sliced strawberries, or blackberries. Fresh or frozen berries will work in the recipe, just make sure to add a little extra cooking time any time you are using frozen fruit.
- Want to add more protein? Consider using the whole egg instead of the egg white and throw some chia seeds into the mix. It will add some protein as well as extra fiber and antioxidants.
- Craving dessert? This recipe is amazing any with chocolate. The chocolate melts and gets gooey and delicious. Personally I love the combination of sliced bananas and dark chocolate chips.
- In addition to adding toppings during the cooking process, you can also top the yogurt with all sorts of tasty tidbits. Consider drizzling on some melted peanut butter, adding a dollop of Greek yogurt, adding some fresh fruit, or throwing on some nuts or seeds.
- If you are looking for a gluten free option, make sure to choose gluten free oatmeal. It's readily available in most grocery stores or online.
