Well, I found a great new recipe on the Allrecipes.com site for blueberry and nut healthy muffins with only 1 Tablespoon of oil in the batter. It also includes mashed banana and I added 1 granny smith apple, peeled and grated also in addition to the blueberries it called for.
When I added the apple I had to also add cinnamon since you can’t have apple without cinnamon, of course. I also love streusel topping on my muffins for texture, so I made an easy topping before baking. Hope you love these moist and healthy muffins as much as I do. HERE is the recipe on the Allrecipes.com site too, but I am putting my version below.
Health Nut Bllueberry Muffins (but I call them Fruit & Nut Muffins)
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 granny smith apple, peeled and shredded
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 large or 2 small bananas, mashed
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract\
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon or less
2. In a large bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, cinnamon, quick-cooking oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gently stir in the blueberries, apple and walnuts. In a separate bowl, mix together the mashed banana, buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix just until blended. Spoon into muffin cups, filling all the way to the top. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, 1/4 cup walnuts and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of all.
3. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly touched.
