These Blueberry Oatmeal Lemon Cheesecake Muffins are so decadently delicious you might just want to throw on a dollop of whipped cream & call them dessert.
I often share my baked treats with my co-workers at the university but I am not the only baker in the office. My work colleague, Tish, can knock out a mean cheesecake, office birthday cake or a terrific butter shortbread cookie with ease too.
She’s no slouch with muffins either, as she proved when she shared some of her version of these scrumptious morsels with us last week.
She got this idea from Kraft Canada’s website where they had posted it as a recipe for Philadelphia brand cream cheese. They are so delicious and moist and very hard to resist.
I love the combination of blueberry and oatmeal and this would make an outstanding muffin all on it’s own. The middle lemon cheesecake layer takes it way into super-delicious territory.
I have to admit I ate three of these for breakfast when I baked them one early morning this week. I’m already thinking about new variations of this fantastic recipe using different berries and luscious cheesecake varieties.

- 1 cup large rolled oats not minute or instant oats

- 1 cup 8oz cream cheese
- zest of 1 small lemon finely minced
- 1/4 cup sugar

- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 beaten egg
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 12 muffin cups with large paper liners.
Begin by soaking together the rolled oats and soured milk (or buttermilk) for 10 minutes.
While the oats are soaking cream together the 1/4 cup sugar, cream cheese, lemon zest until well blended then set aside
Sift together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Spoon half of the batter into the muffin cups. Spoon in the lemon cream cheese mixture on top of the batter distributing it evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Top with a final layer of the blueberry oatmeal batter and bake at 350 degrees F for 25- 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If using frozen blueberries they may take a few extra minutes. Allow these to cool before serving. These also freeze exceptionally well.
