Half Dozen Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

by on February 4, 2012 · 5 comments

Last week the people at Swerve sent over a lovely sample pack of their sweetener. I’m still testing it in different things and will give you the verdict soon, but along the way I discovered a really good muffin recipe and wanted to share it. I like this one because it calls for whole wheat flour, a ton of blueberries and just enough butter to give you a normal (as opposed to rubbery or dry) muffin texture. And for some reason I think it would be really awesome with blackberries and maybe a pinch of lemon zest.

An easy muffin recipe made with half whole wheat flour
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar or your favorite sugar alternative
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus 1 tbsp.
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (use slightly less if using salted butter)
  • 1 1/3 cups frozen blueberries, no need to thaw
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a six muffin cups with paper liners. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, vanilla and sugar together with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and stir until blended, then stir in the milk.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flours, baking powder, and salt. Stir it into the butter and sugar mixture, then stir in the frozen blueberries, being careful not to squash them (if they're frozen, they'll be fine!). Fill the muffin cups almost to the top and bake for 25 minutes, or until light brown. Makes 6 muffins.

I am always on the lookout for good ‘healthy’ berry muffins, because people always seem to want ‘healthy’ fruit muffins and care a bit less when there is chocolate involved…and I can tie it into the Superbowl, too and say GO BIG BLUE ;)

It’s lunchtime and I’d like one with my lunch!

I got busy and made them for lunch! We both liked them a lot. They’re tender and chock full of blueberries. I used King Arthur White Whole Wheat for the wheat flour. I woud definitely make them again!

I made a full batch of these this morning with the addition of lemon zest. They are quite good. Mine took a little longer to cook, as my blueberries were frozen. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
