Who doesn’t love a quick and easy breakfast that the kids also enjoy? The boys both enjoy muffins and my husband likes having food to grab on his way out the door for work. I have been seeing the recipe for Blueberry Muffins pop up on Pinterest quite a few times lately, so I had to try them! I used the recipe Melanie Mitro (Top Beachbody Coach!) posted on her blog. They did NOT disappoint. We made them how she wrote the recipe and from our table to yours, I would recommend them. 🙂
Zachary, my 3 year old son, and I LOVE cooking together in the morning before his little brother wakes up for the day. This morning, Zach hopped down the stairs demanding his morning milk and a hug. 🙂 I started gathering all of the ingredients from the cabinets and told him that we were going to make a new recipe – he was SO excited! I plopped him down on the counter with a wooden spoon in hand – he was ready to stir! We mashed bananas, measured, counted and stirred in the ingredients. After I poured the batter into the muffin tin, he was in charge of topping each muffin with 6 or 7 blueberries. He did a great job! When the oven was ready, we anxiously awaited the muffins, sneaking peeks at them as they baked and the aromas of the oatmeal started wafting in our direction. When they were ready, I let them cool while we went to get Noah from his room. Each of us had our 21 Day Fix Blueberry Baked Oatmeal cups and the boys LOVED them – SO DID I!
The best part is, they are 21 Day Fix approved! If you are interested in joining my next challenge, message me to get in on this amazing opportunity to reach your health and fitness goals!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did! Thank you, Melanie!!

How do you account for the eggs in this recipe?should they be something like half a red per muffin?
Hi Christy! The recipe calls for 2 eggs (which is 1 red container) and makes a total of 12 muffins. By the time you divide it all out, it is 1/12 of a red container and I don’t bother counting that because there truly is not much protein in a single serving. Enjoy!
Can I use cow milk? I’m not a huge fan of almond milk so I don’t keep it in the house.
Yes – I would think that would be just fine. 🙂
Hey!! Just wondering if this same recipe would work with quick oats..I couldn’t find rolled ones! Thanks in advance!
Hi Alexa – I would think so (I haven’t tried it!) The old fashioned oats are usually next to the quick oats where I shop. Did you try it? What did you think?
What about using peaches ?
Absolutely! I think that would be yummy!
Angela, I have to Thank you I have tired quite a bit of your recipes. Everything has been so good. I just wanted to thank you for posting all of them. I just made the oatmeal cups, they are great! The other night I made your Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas, my husband and son loved them! Thank you again.
I am so happy you are loving the recipes! 🙂 You are so very welcome – thank YOU for telling me! 🙂
Could I line the muffin tin with foil liners instead of spraying it?
I would think so – or maybe the parchment paper liners so they don’t stick. 🙂
How long do these keep for? Could you freeze to make them last longer?
I would say they keep for a few days or so – I would think you can freeze them! I have not tried!
Any idea how many WW points these would be!? Love this recipe — thank you!
I don’t know! I am not familiar with how to break those down! 🙂
I have a banana allergy. Could I use applesauce in place of bananas?
Yes – that should be fine, it may change the consistency though (I am not a pro-baker, so I am not 100% positive on this!)
