Got this from a video on NYT.com. Mark Bittman really stressed minimizing the stirring to keep the muffins' texture light (rather than like sawdust). I used white whole wheat flour rather than pastry milled, folded the barest minimum, and then put the rather crumbly "batter" in the tins by briefly molded handfuls rather than with a spoon. Sure got some glowing reviews from the family.
