1 1/2 cups brown sugar lightly packed (240g)
3/4 cup 0% plain Greek yoghurt (155g)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (115g)
1/4 cup canola oil (50g)

How to make Healthy Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: In a medium bowl, combine the oats with hot water. Let it sit for at least 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 3: To make the batter, add the brown sugar, yoghurt, applesauce, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth.

Step 4: Then, stir in the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until smooth.

Step 5: Take the soaked oats and stir them into the batter mix until evenly incorporated.

Step 6: Add the flour and berries and mix until just combined. Make sure to not overmix.

Step 7: Fill the lightly greased 24 cups muffin pan with the batter until around 3/4 full.

Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. Check the doneness by inserting a toothpick in the centre of the muffin. Once the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are done.
