Bake these oat muffins in just 20 minutes. These easy muffins are ready in just four steps.

Just like our classic blueberry muffins, these oat muffins are made using fresh blueberries. The blueberries work perfectly with the spongy texture of the oats. These mouthwatering muffins are made with golden caster sugar, honey, and sour cream for an extra soft, golden sponge.


  • 100g (3½oz) self-raising white flour
  • 100g (3½oz) self-raising brown flour
  • ½tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½tsp baking powder
  • 90g (3oz) oats, plus 1tbsp for sprinkling on top
  • 60g (2oz) golden caster sugar
  • 180g pack fresh blueberries
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 284ml carton soured cream
  • 6tbsp runny honey
  • 6tbsp sunflower oil
  • 12-hole muffin tins, lined with paper muffin cases




  1. Set the oven to gas mark 4 or 180°C. Sieve the white and brown flours into a bowl, tipping in the bran left in the sieve. Add the bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, oats and sugar. Gently stir the dry ingredients together and sprinkle in the blueberries.
  2. Beat the eggs in a large jug, then add the soured cream, honey and oil and beat together with a fork.
  3. Tip the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and gently fold everything together, stirring until the ingredients are just combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases. Sprinkle with the rest of the oats. Bake for 20 mins until well-risen and pale golden. Serve warm, or cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight tin.

Be careful not to over-mix, or the blueberries will bleed into the cake mixture and make it look grey. Lumps are ok in this mixture.
