Mini Lemon Blueberry Walnut Muffins — ”Brain Bites”


  • 1 Cup White Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ Cup Old-Fashioned Oats
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp Gound Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon Zest
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • ¼ Cup Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 Cup 2% Milk
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ Cup Chopped Walnuts, divided
  • 2/3 Cup Fresh Blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and line an 11×7 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together oats, walnuts, coconut, cranberries, brown sugar, cinnamon and dates in a large bowl.
  3. Add honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
  4. Transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and stick together when pressed between your fingers.
  5. Transfer to prepared baking dish and press down very firmly using a spatula or your hands. (Covering mixture with a piece of parchment or plastic wrap and pressing down with your fingers makes this easier.)
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, then let cool completely. Remove from pan and cut into 8 equal bars.
