Fluffy whole grain blueberry muffins recipe for breakfast or brunch

Delicious Blueberry Muffin Recipe. My mother-in-law made the most amazing blueberry muffins a while back.  I got the recipe and then modified them to be whole grain, lower in sugar, and a bit simpler to create.  It took some work, but the final product is still light, fluffy, and blueberrylicious!  You will want to make these every time blueberries go on sale!    – Jessica

 

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cups sugar

1/2 cup oil

1 egg

1 cup plain yogurt

1 cup fresh blueberries

 

  1. PREHEAT:  Preheat oven to 400 F and grease muffin tins (for 12 muffins) with cooking spray.
  2. DRY INGREDIENTS:  Whisk together the flour, soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. BLUEBERRIES:  Rinse the blueberries and drain or pat most of the water off.  Place them in a small bowl and stir in 1 Tbsp of the dry ingredient mixture.  Place 3 blueberries on the bottom of each of the 12 spaces in the greased muffin tins.
  4. WET INGREDIENTS:  In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, egg, and yogurt.
  5. COMBINE:  Carefully stir in the wet ingredients into the dry ones just until barely mixed.
  6. FILL:  Fill each space in the muffin tins 3/4 of the way full with batter.  Sprinkle the rest of the blueberries evenly on top of the muffins, pressing them down lightly.
  7. BAKE:  Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and immediately pop the muffins out of the tins, upside down onto a clean towel to cool.

 

Note:  The careful placement of the blueberries on the bottoms and tops of the muffins is essential to not having them all clump together as one big blueberry blob.

    i used regular whole wheat flour instead of pastry flour, and 6oz greek yogurt + 2oz water instead of 8oz regular yogurt, and brown sugar instead of white sugar. this made the batter thick enough so it did not flow, which turned out not to matter much. crunchy brown tops. yum.
