A Healthy Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Hanschen Klein's Healthy Blueberry Muffin

A friend of mine stops by our office every now and again and she always drops off the most delicious treats and they are always healthy. Delicious and Healthy are two words that don’t often go together in my book. I wanted to make Blueberry Muffins for my office and asked if she would pass along a recipe. And this is the recipe she gave me…

INGREDIENTS

  • 1  1/3 c.  whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 c.  all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp  baking power
  • 1 tsp  salt
  • 1/4 c.  apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 tsp maple flavoring
  • 3/4 c.  granulated sugar
  • 2 c.  blueberries

TO BAKE

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt (set it aside for later). In another bowl, combine apple sauce, butter, large egg, flavoring, and sugar — stir well.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and add wet ingredients.  Mix.  Pour half the batter into your muffin tins and drop in half the blueberries. Top off your muffins with the rest of the batter and place the rest of your blueberries on top. Bake for 10-15 minutes. These will be delicious. But if you think you need a little extra sugar (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a little sugar?), you can top off your muffins with a glaze.

THE GLAZE

  • 1 c.  powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring

Mix powder sugar, milk, and maple flavoring — drizzle when warm. YUM.  Enjoy.
