Blueberry Health Muffins

I'm recycling a recipe for my What's Cookin' Wednesday this week. With back to school in full gear and MoM's and Dad's rushing out the door it's easy to forget to make yourself breakfast. Here's a yummy muffin you can make ahead and then just grab on your way out the door. I found this recipe in Whole Living Magazine last year and it's seriously one of my favorites.

Here's what you need:
  • 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup of all purpose flour (white flour)
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of 2% milk
  • 1/4 vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • additional 2 tablespoons of toasted wheat germ
  • additional tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats

What to do:
  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Line muffin pan with paper liners (spray them with Pam for baking so they don't stick)
  • In a bowl whisk together the wheat flour, all purpose flour, wheat germ, baking powder, salt and brown sugar
  • Make a well in the center of the bowl and add the milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Fold in the blueberries
  • Divide batter among the 12 cups
  • In a small bowl combine the additional wheat germ, brown sugar and rolled oats
  • Top each muffin with the mixture
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean)
  • Let sit in pan for 10 minutes then transfer to cooling rack

Crazy that these can be called blueberry health muffins because they look so very yummy! I love a good muffin recipe...when the weather gets a bit cooler it's one of my favorite things to make for an easy breakfast to grab out the door!
