Mixed Berry & Lemon Oatmeal Muffins

First, a thanks to Sally’s Baking addiction. This is her recipe with a few modifications. I just wanted to share the recipe with you and some pictures of the lovely muffins it produced. So far, my favorite healthy muffin recipe. 

Go to her recipe for the full recipe, she’s a great baker!

My version of the recipe is below. It’s August and we have some fresh wild blackberries growing in the yard so I replaced the blueberries with freshly picked blackberries and added some raspberries on top. The result was a perfectly tart but sweet muffin. If you like tart berries like I do, you will love this recipe.

Mixed Berry & Lemon Oatmeal Muffins

Prep time: 40 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Makes 12 muffins


  • 1 cup (240ml) milk
  • 1 cup (80g) old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/4 (156g) cups all-purpose flour (I used a 50:50 mix with wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (about 1/2 lemon, zested)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1155g) butter
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (190g) fresh or frozen blackberries (do not thaw if frozen)
  • 12 raspberries for garnish


1. Combine oats and milk and set aside for 20 minutes. Soaking makes them rise more. Don’t skip!

2. Preheat oven to 425F (218 C). Spray a muffin tin or line with paper liners.

3. Whisk all the dry ingredients into one bowl. Mix the wet ingredients into another bowl. Then, pour the wet ingredients into the dry and add all the soaked milk and oats. Stir a few times. Batter will be thick. Then, gently stir in the blackberries.

4. Divide batter into muffin tins. Then, bake for 5 minutes at 425 F, then reduce oven to 350 F (177 F) for 16-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Muffins stay fresh a few days at room temp and a week in the fridge.
