Yummy, moist, low calories. From The Volumetrics Cookbook for Jenny Craig, by Barbara Rolls, Ph.D. Note: Use fresh blueberries; frozen makes batter too watery.
- 1 3⁄4 cups flour
- 3⁄4 cup light brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 1⁄4 cups low-fat buttermilk
- 1 1⁄4 cups unsweetened applesauce
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh blueberries
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Lightly coat a 16-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
- Mix together 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sugar, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
- Whisk together the buttermilk, applesauce, egg, oil, and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
- Toss the blueberries in 1/4 cup all-purpose flour to lightly coat the berries.
- Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until the batter is just moistened. Fold in the blueberries.
- Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin cups. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes. Cool the muffins in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins and serve warm or at room temperature.
Delicious! I used organic cinnamon applesauce and added a pinch of cardamom. Super moist and very tasty!
so yummy - mine made 20 muffins, next time i'm going to try with honey instead of brown sugar since that's my preferred sweetener. But, a fun way to use up the in-season blueberries :-)
Marvelous muffins. I made a half recipe for 6 muffins using 2 tablespoons on Splenda Brown Blend and 2 Tbsp egg white and frozen berries . It produced 7 lovely standard sized muffins that are moist and yummy. This recipe is a keeper. Made for PAC, Fall '09.
