Greedy Recipe! Instant Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

OMG. Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal. I licked the bowl clean… while at work. Didn’t care who saw me.

blueberry muffin oatmeal Greedy Recipe! Instant Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

After having salad with chicken breast for lunch, my stomachs demanded additional nourishment. So why not make a “muffin”?  You’ll be muffinated in less than 4 minutes when you try this. It’s sweet, yet low in sugar and screams of decadence.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, or as much as desired
  • 1/2 cup oats — not the instant kind
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 packet or teaspoon of coconut sugar

DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients into microwave safe bowl, except for the sugar.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until your “muffin” thickens to desired consistency.
  • Sprinkle coconut sugar on top and let it melt in. Ahhhh!

I cooked my oatmeal a bit thick to garner more of a “muffin” texture. Also added lots of blueberries to totally bling it out with flavor.

Coconut Sugar Notes: I do recommend you use coconut sugar due to its low glycemic index rating. This sugar is derived from the sap of the coconut tree, not the coconut itself. It won’t taste like coconuts but, instead, offers a lovely sweetness that will keep your fitness on track as you enjoy gnawing on your “muffin”.

Coconut sugar is wonderfully sweet, yet with a rating of 35, has a lower GI Index than apples, carrots, and oranges. Refined white sugar has a GI Index of 99. Whoa!

What Does the Glycemic Index Mean?

“The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets also reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance. “~ via University of Sydney

Well how about THAT! Coconut sugar’s nutrient profile will also slap yo’ face off with impressiveness.

Hope your ready to enjoy your sweet blueberry “muffin”. This is a great meal for anytime of day, and especially works well in the evening when you’re feeling extra greedy snacky.

Now open up those hungry jaws wide and CHEW.

  8. Hmm, I hate the consistency of oatmeal but love muffins made with oats. Am intrigued but frightened. I wonder if I could fool it into rising with a little baking powder or if the results would be a tragically unmuffinlike salty flavored oatmeal mush? Only one way to find out…
