These tasty, satisfying, low-fat muffins are a hit!
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 25 mins
Yield: 12 x muffins
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Lightly spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, oil, applesauce, and egg.
Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry mixture, stirring until it is just combined (do not over mix). Lightly stir in the blueberries.
Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Bake in preheated oven until the tops are golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool slightly. Then transfer the muffins to cooling rack. Serve warm.
* Note: Buttermilk can be replaced with one cup of nonfat yogurt; or make your own buttermilk by mixing one cup of nonfat milk with one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar (ingredient suggestions are not included in the nutritional analysis).
To freeze the muffins, store them in a zipper-lock storage bag and
they will keep for up to a month. To reheat frozen muffins in the
microwave, wrap them in a paper towel and heat on high for 30 seconds.
Tossing unthawed frozen blueberries with two tablespoons of flour before adding them to the batter helps to keep them from turning the batter purple while the muffins bake.
