Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
Prep time: 15 minutesCooking time: 20 minutesTotal time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

1 1⁄2 cups
whole wheat flour
1⁄2 cup
sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon
salt
2 teaspoons
baking powder
1
egg, slightly beaten
1⁄3 cup
oil
1⁄3 cup
nonfat or 1% milk
1⁄2 cup
unsweetened applesauce
2 cups
blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat the bottom of 12 muffin cups with oil or baking spray.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, blend vegetable oil, egg, milk and applesauce until smooth.
  4. Stir the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture until just moistened. Lightly stir in the blueberries.
  5. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full.
  6. Bake about 20 minutes, or until the muffin tops are golden brown.  A toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin should come out moist but without batter.

Notes

  • To use sweetened applesauce, remove about 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar from the measured amount.
  • To bake as a bread, use a greased 8- or 9-inch bread pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes.
  • No whole wheat flour? Replace with all-purpose flour.
  • Replace blueberries with another fruit. Try diced apples with 1 teaspoon cinnamon, fresh or frozen cranberries with 1 1/2 teaspoon orange zest, or diced bananas.
