Ingredients

Healthy Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

  • 2 ½ cups White Whole Wheat Flour can also use all purpose, wheat or spelt flour or use ½ & ½ combos of AP flour & wheat flour
  • 1 cup healthy monk fruit sugar like Lakanto or can use granulated sugar or brown sugar, coconut sugar or sugar of choice
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon optional
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup canola oil or oil of choice
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk or milk of choice (plain yogurt could be used as well)
  • As needed Sugar for sprinkling on muffin tops (optional) Glaze can also be made

Instructions

Healthy Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease the cups of a standard muffin pan (12 muffins); or line with paper baking cups, and grease the paper cups with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Measure flour by gently spooning it into a cup, then sweeping off any excess into a large bowl.
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda and cinnamon, optional.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, oil, and buttermilk/milk.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just to combine.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, a heaped muffin scoop of batter is just the right amount. They will rise a small amount.
  • Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one of the center muffins comes out clean.
  • Remove the muffins from the oven, and after 10-15 minutes (or when they're cool enough to handle) transfer them to a rack to cool. Serve warm, or at room temperature. Store leftovers loosely wrapped at room temperature for several days; freeze for longer storage.

Glaze options:

  • For a little extra sweetness without guilt, mix up 1 cup of healthy powdered sugar, a tablespoon or two of milk of choice and spoon some glaze on top of your muffins. Lakanto's powdered sugar is excellent and tastes amazing!  I highly recommend it.  Otherwise, just use regular powdered sugar, if you want a little more sweetness.
    Add a little vanilla, lemon zest or a little lemon juice to your glaze to make it extra yummy!  

Notes

  • To make buttermilk:  Measure 1.5 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice and add in your favorite milk of choice to equal 1.5 cups and let it sit for 5 minutes to curdle and thicken before adding it to the muffin batter.  
  • For longer storage, freeze muffins for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature or warm up in the microwave if desired.
