  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a cupcake pan with nonstick cooking spray.  I used 12 cupcake pan.
  2. Add oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine. In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon zest. Slowly pour in the melted butter, whisking constantly.
  3. Add the oat mixture and blueberries to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Transfer to a greased cupcake pan using a 1/2 measuring cup to scoop out ingredients and bake for 20 minutes. I got 9 cupcakes from this recipe.  Cool slightly before serving.  One cupcake per serving.  Store in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 5 days, or in the freezer.  The great thing about these oatmeal cupcakes is that you can use the recipe above as your base and swap out with different fruit…such as peach and coconut, banana and peanut butter, apricots and almonds, dark chocolate chips and cranberries.  The combo’s are endless!
