Blueberry Muffins - A Healthier Muffin

Submitted by: JustRightMenus


These are my second-favorite blueberry muffin.... but far healthier than my favorite ones!

Servings: 10

Dry Ingredients

1 c. quick oats (the kind that cook in 1 minute)

1/4 c. regular rolled oats

1/2 c. white flour

1/2 c. oat bran

1/3 c. sugar

1 TB baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

1 c. milk (I use 1%)

1 egg

6 TB unsweetened applesauce (about 1 of those individual-serving cups they sell in packs)


Don't Forget: 1 1/3 c. fresh bluberries


2 TB regular, rolled oats

1/4 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 415°.

Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine all wet ingredients.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ones until mostly combined - you'll see some areas that look dry.

Mix the blueberries in gently.

Divide into ten greased muffin cups (or use paper liners). Note: I've heard it's helpful to put water in the muffin pan cups you're not using. I don't do this, though, because it always ends with spilled water and burns at my house.

Bake 15 minutes at 415°. To tell if they're done, stick a toothpick down the center of the biggest muffin. If it comes out clean or with just crumbs, they're done. If it comes out with batter on it, give them another 2 minutes.

Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing. I find it helpful to run a knife around the edge of each of the muffins before trying to pop them out.
