The Full List of Ingredients

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of preparing this wholesome and filling breakfast. Here’s my simple recipe that will have you enjoying your blueberry muffin oatmeal in no time:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy of your choice)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries


Make sure you don’t skip the Greek yogurt in this recipe. It’s important! It adds a the tangy, creaminess that gives this oatmeal the true blueberry muffin flavor. Stir it in with the blueberries just before serving – you won’t regret it, I promise.

Now, Here’s How to Make Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

  1. Combine the Basics: In a saucepan, combine the oats, milk, water, brown sugar, chia seeds, and vanilla extract. Add a pinch of sea salt and bring it to a gentle simmer over medium heat until it thickens. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.
  2. Add Blueberries and Greek Yogurt: Once the oats have absorbed most of the liquid (usually within 8-10 minutes), remove from heat and stir in the Greek yogurt and blueberries. The heat will soften the blueberries slightly and they’ll release their sweet juices into the oatmeal and the Greek yogurt melts like butter into the oats to create the creamiest texture.
  3. Serve and Customize: Spoon your creamy blueberry muffin oatmeal into a bowl (actually, two bowls – unless your super hungry). And now comes the fun part – add your favorite toppings. Whether it’s a sprinkle of chopped nuts for crunch, a spicy pinch of cinnamon, or a drizzle of maple syrup for extra sweetness, make it your own my friends.

So, the next time you find yourself craving the warmth and comfort of a blueberry muffin, but it’s only 6 am, remember this recipe. It’s a delicious way to start your day on the right foot, with a bowl full of goodness that’ll put a smile on your face and satisfy your blueberry muffin craving.
