Oh my gosh, I can’t believe school is starting for us in less than two weeks! Where has the summer gone?!

Are you ready for school to start again? I’m getting ready by going through all of my easy breakfast recipes and snack recipes, so I can make sure my kids have something delicious and filling in their bellies before school (and after school).

These Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal Muffin Tops are like mini baked oatmeals that are portable, not to mention totally adorable!

I baked these in my Wilton Muffin Top Pan  so my kids thought these were cookies and couldn’t wait to grab one.

The heavenly aroma that creeps out of your oven while these bake will surely grab everyone’s attention. But it’s the nutty and rich texture of the muffin, along with the sweet blueberries that will seal the deal.

If you’re not interested in the muffin tops, you can always bake these beauties in a regular muffin time! They’re just as portable, but a little thicker in size, so you won’t get as many servings per batch.

    If I do not have a muffin top pan..... if I'm using a regular muffin tin but I want them to look like muffin tops, I need to know how much they are going to rise so that I know how much batter to put in each muffin cup

    1. The trouble with almond flour is that it's not a direct 1:1 ratio with all purpose flour, so the whole recipe would have to be reworked in order for it to bake properly. I'm sure it would work, I just don't know the exact measurements to give you for this. Sorry about that!
    1. Hi Pat, I'm sure that would work! I would just bake it at a lower temperature for longer, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. :)
  3. Hey Shawn! I've been a fan of yours since the beginning! Not only for your delicious recipes, but your photographs are the bomb! You could certainly be a foodie photog! Just a thought! Anyway, wondering if I could replace the oil with applesauce? Just recently started a 1300 calorie diet so everything helps! Thanks Shawn! Jess
  4. I love the blueberry swirls...They look like a wonderful breakfast option. The walnuts are a great addition. Anyhoo, we have been keeping an eye out for unique and interesting bloggers with phenomenal photography skills, and yours caught our attention! We have just recently launched a food photo submission gallery http://www.yumgoggle.com/gallery/ that allows you to showcase all your great work and share it with all of our visitors. We’d be proud to have your work as part of our growing collection to continue to have a larger reach and further inspire all fellow food lovers out there!
  5. Um, Walmart is the bomb. I just bought a weeks worth of groceries PLUS tons of baking candy for $80. And shhh...I like McDonalds too. These muffins are awesome! I love the idea of making them for Jordan for school mornings. She'd love them!
  6. Ha! Consider your foodie badge revoked. You can take mine too while you're at it...I'm a sucker for an egg mcmuffin. I'm definitely gonna have to whip up some of these though since we will have no time for McDonald's once school starts again.
  7. I make an oatmeal blueberry flourless muffin...I grind up the oats with almonds and coconut to make a flour. I like the thought of the whole oats to though...so I may see if I can merge our recipes ;-) Thanks for sharing! I'm also going to look for the muffin top tin!
  8. No judgments here! I LOVE McDonald's. From growing up on it to being a poor college student needing to eat, it's always there. Nothing beats those fries when they're super hot and salty :) also, I LOVE their blueberry oatmeal and when I saw these, I immediately thought of that. Thankfully I just bought a muffin top pan, too. These need to be made immediately.
  9. I didn't know there was such a thing as a cavity muffin tin pan! It's funny...those McDonalds breakfast commercials inspired our fruit-filled oatmeal breakfast yesterday--I used our freeze-dried (food storage) pears and raspberries and added raisins, brown sugar, and milk. I think it was just as good, if not better, than McDonalds', which I actually love as a special treat. These look yummy (sans the walnuts...I'm allergic).
    1. I love this muffin top pan, there is a link up above where you can order one. They are great for deep dish cookies, and of course muffins! But yes, leave out the walnuts if you're allergic! :)
