Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour 195 grams
  • ½ cup quick oats or oat bran
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk see note
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup canola oil or sunflower oil
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries (8 oz)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).
  • Grease a 12 standard-size muffin cups with oil (see note). Alternatively, line the pan with cupcake liners.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and canola oil together.
  • Whisk the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until thick and smooth.
  • Optional: Toss the blueberries with 1 tsp flour to coat. This will prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Fold the blueberries into the batter.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan so the cups are ¾ full.

  • You can substitute raspberries, chopped strawberries or small berries in this recipe.
  • Store muffins for up to 3 days in an airtight container at room temperature. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months in a sealed ziptop bag.
