For the Muffins:

  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (If using frozen blueberries, don't thaw them before adding to the batter)

For the Topping:

  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 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.
