  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Put the flour, 80g oats, the sugar and lemon zest in a large bowl with a pinch of salt and mix to combine.

  2. Whisk the oil, yogurt, eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl, then slowly stir into the dry ingredients to form a smooth batter. Tip in 150g blueberries and the apple, then stir gently to distribute evenly. Divide between the muffin cases, filling them about ¾ full, then stud each with 2-3 blueberries and sprinkle with the remaining porridge oats.

  3. Bake for 40-45 mins until the berries have burst slightly, the muffins are golden and a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool completely in the tin. Will keep for up to 3 days at room temperature in an airtight container.

Cook's tip: These also make a great breakfast – why not cook up a batch and freeze until you’re ready to eat?
