- • Vegetable cooking spray
- • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- • 2 egg whites from large eggs
- • 1 large egg
- • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
- • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- • 1 tablespoon baking powder
- • 1 teaspoon baking soda
- • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- • 1/4 cup dried fruit such as blueberries or cherries
- • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (if frozen, do not thaw)
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a muffin pan with cooking spray, or place muffin liners/papers in the pan and set aside.
Mix the applesauce, yogurt, egg whites, egg, vanilla and maple syrup together in a large bowl until smooth.
Mix the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, dried fruit and walnuts together. Add the blueberries so that they are coated with dry ingredients. (This will keep the blueberries evenly distributed through the batter.)
Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients and mix gently, just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Divide the batter among 12 regular muffin cups. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the tops are dry and golden. Turn the muffins onto a wire rack to cool.
Makes 12 muffins.
