I’m still trying to recuperate from a fantastic 10-day vacation visiting my daughter for Christmas and getting the whole family together. We even slipped in a trip to the Peach Bowl to see our Gators football team play Michigan. It was fun but exhausting with 4 grandchildren running around and 10 people to cook meal for. Now I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and, as you can tell, I’m a little late getting my Wednesday post out.

If you ate all those Christmas goodies (like I did) and promised yourself you’d eat better in the new year, these Blueberry Yogurt Oatmeal Muffins would be a great start. They’re quick and easy to throw together, taking about 30 minutes total, and are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast for busy mornings. They’ve got tons of goodness in each bite and are gluten-free and dairy-free too.

Blueberry Yogurt Oatmeal Muffins breakfast

Breakfast is an important meal, just like mama said, and I want to make that breakfast as easy as possible so that everyone eats something. It’s been proven that eating breakfast helps children perform better at school and adults outperform those that don’t have breakfast at work.  So, besides these hearty and delicious Blueberry Yogurt Oatmeal Muffins, I’ve got lots of options on the blog for you. Try my Breakfast Cookies (after all, who wouldn’t love cookies for breakfast), Healthy Banana Pancakes, Quinoa Waffles or Quick & Easy Breakfast Bowls.

What makes these Blueberry Yogurt Oatmeal Muffins so good for you?

Oats to start with, which pack a powerful fiber punch, eggs and yogurt for protein and fresh blueberries for important antioxidants. In fact, blueberries are the top berry in this category. The antioxidants found in blueberries not only strengthen the cardiovascular system but virtually every system in the body! Just look!

  • Reduces damage to muscles following exercise
  • Protects the nervous system from oxidative stress
  • Reduces risk of neurogenerative diseases, especially in older adults
  • Protects the blood sugar regulatory system
  • Protects the digestive tract against colon cancer

Just a few easy steps to a healthy breakfast!
