Delicious and Healthy Muffins

Our blueberry cardamom oat blender muffins are not only sumptuous but they are packed with the good stuff too. The combination of oatmeal, blueberries, and cardamom makes this recipe a powerhouse of nutrients.

Blueberries are the most nutrient-dense fruit. These little blue morsels are full of antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals. And if you’re trying to control your weight and blood sugar levels, these berries have a low glycemic index too.

Who would have known that these berries that you often put on your pancakes can do your body a lot of good?

Blueberries are also superfoods for the liver. So these tasty and tangy fruits can benefit your health in so many ways.

Oatmeal is a breakfast staple. It’s high in fiber and very healthy for the heart. And compared to bread, it also has a lower glycemic index and helps you feel fuller longer. Oats are a good source of the soluble fiber beta-glucan that can help with some digestive problems.

But it’s not always easy to make your kids finish a bowl of oatmeal. But with this recipe muffin blender recipe, you don’t have to beg your kids to finish their plate. They’ll even be asking for a second helping.

And this recipe is an ingenious way of incorporating oatmeal into your diet, less the redundancy.

Cardamom is a traditional Indian seed with an intense flavor and has a slightly sweet taste. This plant seed has a lot of antioxidants, polyphenols, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. This seed also has hints of lemon flavor.

Cardamom has a complex taste aroma that some may find the menthol taste not palatable. But some still find it too intense when consumed on its own. But the sweetness and tanginess of the blueberries balance the rich piney taste of cardamom. So what can we say, it’s another match made in kitchen’s heaven!

  1. An extra fluffy muffin is always welcome. You can mimic the velvety texture of buttermilk by curdling the milk first with a little bit of lemon juice. But if you’re histamine intolerant, you might not be able to tolerate citrus fruits.
  2. You can lower the total calories coming from carbohydrates by reducing the syrup to 1/4 cup. And if you don’t want to compromise the sweetness, but want to lessent the calories, use manuka honey instead. It’s sweeter than maple syrup but has the same calories.
  3. Aside from oats, you can also substitue with other whole grain flours such as barley, buckwheat, corn, and millet.
  4. For the non-dairy milk, you can use soymilk, oatmilk or almond milk.
