WW Recipe of the Day: Low-Fat Lemon Blueberry Muffins
Muffins are one of my favorite breakfast splurges. But I feel better when I go light on the fat and sugar in the morning.
So, I'm always on the lookout for light and healthy versions, like these Low-Fat Lemon Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins.
I spotted these easy healthy muffins in Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook: Lose Weight with 433 Foods You Crave! (affiliate link), a great cookbook on loan from Mom.
I decided to make a half batch (6 muffins). Brimming with juicy blueberries and luscious lemon flavor, it's the streusel topping that really makes them special.
You can find the recipe for a full batch of these lemon blueberry oatmeal muffins at Taste of Home.

- 1-½ teaspoons baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- ½ teaspoon grated lemon peel

- ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries (If using frozen blueberries, don't thaw them before adding to the batter)
For the Topping:
- ¼ cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1-½ teaspoons butter, softened
- Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until well combined.
- In another bowl stir together the egg, milk, melted butter, lemon peel and vanilla until well blended.
- Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Gently fold in the blueberries.
- Coat 6 muffin cups with cooking spray or use paper liners.
- Evenly distribute the batter amongst the 6 muffin cups.
- Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle evenly over the batter in the muffin cups.
- Bake in a preheated 400F degree oven until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 20 to 24 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let the muffins rest in the pan for 5 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely before storing or enjoy while still a little warm.

Hi, When you give recipes for muffins, do you use regular size muffin tin or do you make mini muffins? The calories are regular muffin? Thank you.
Hi Lola, I specify when the muffins are "mini" otherwise they are make in regular size muffin tins. Hope this helps.
Hi Lola, They are regular size muffins unless otherwise specified. Hope this helps.
Love these!! Have also used strawberries, as well as strawberries and blackberries together (doubled the recipe for 12 muffins)
These are perfect, delicious, moist and small. Perfect!
Ur recipe gets bonus points for being a smaller batch! Gonna try this soon. I only have rolled oats on hand, I am planning to pulse it and use in place of quick cooking oats. Do you think it would work out well?
Excellent! Husband and grandkid approved! Thanks for the recipe Martha.
