Blueberry Muffins, With a Twist

on May 22, 2011

Blueberry muffins have always been a favorite of mine. Until today, they’ve always come out of a box. The blueberries were in a tin and tiny and pitiful looking.  They were passable, but all I knew, besides bakery muffins.  I’m happy to share with you this recipe, they are delicious, and…..healthy! Not to mention, they go together really easily.

These are not grandma's blueberry muffins!

Blueberry Muffins With a Twist

1-1/4 C all-purpose flour

1 C quick cooking oatmeal

1/2 C packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg, lightly beaten

1C plain, nonfat yogurt

4 tbsp butter, melted

1 C fresh or thawed frozen blueberries

1 C chopped walnuts (optional)

1 tbsp flax meal (optional)

1. Pre heat oven to 400F. Grease regular muffin pan or use cupcake liners

2. Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, including nuts

3. In a separate bowl, mix the yogurt, egg, and butter.

4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just blended. Fold in blueberries.

5. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 18 to 22 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

6. Cool in pan 5 mins, remove to rack to cool completely. Yield: 1 dozen muffins.

I will say these are very delicious and not too sweet. Very hearty. I love the walnuts, they give another texture to the muffins. I added the flax meal for a couple of reasons: the fiber will help them stick with you a bit longer, as well as adding some essential fatty acids that we don’t seem to get enough of. I just made some today and I’m telling you, these are the B-O-M-B! My only complaint is they don’t yield enough, only a dozen!

Are you hungry yet??
