Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F and grease muffin tin with baking spray.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together yogurt, eggs, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Slowly stir wet ingredients into the oat mixture.
  • Gently fold in 3/4 of blueberries, then spoon batter evenly into muffin tin. Top muffins with remaining blueberries.
