Recipe Notes

  • Gluten-free oat flour and rolled oats are labelled as such. I used Bob's Red Mill brand. If gluten isn't a concern, you can use any oat flour or whole grain rolled oats.
  • As an option, make oat flour by running rolled oats through a food processor, then passing through a sifter. The leftover larger pieces can be eaten as instant oats.
  • Fresh blueberries are best, but you can use frozen. You may also have to adjust the baking time to a bit longer.
  • What can I use in place of coconut oil? I have tested avocado oil using the same amount with good success.
  • I recommend using paper or parchment liners instead of simply spraying your muffin tin.
  • These muffins are best enjoyed the day they’re made. We like them warmed up a bit in the microwave or oven.
  • To keep for later, freeze in an airtight container or bag up to a few months. Thaw on counter, then warm in the microwave for about 15 seconds or in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes.
