"I received free blueberries recently. I admit I never actually tasted a real one before. Always the boxed muffin kind. I loved them. Recently switched to whole wheat, so I wanted to try a new muffin recipe out. This is the one that not only turned out great, but filling as well. When I was eating it, I was craving eggs. Next time I will have to remember to throw in a fried egg or two on the side. I made 6 jumbo muffins." — LisaAnn

1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
I soured my milk with a little lemon juice and I added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. I do NOT have a jumbo muffin tin, just a regular 12 cup'er. Baked at 350*, my muffins were done at a little over 20 minutes. My whole family enjoyed these muffins, they were pretty much toast by the end of the day.
These were good, but I did make some changes. In an effort to make them a more healthy, I did 1/4 c. brown sugar and 1/4 c. honey to replace the 1/2c. white sugar. I also added 1/4c. wheat germ (replaced 1/4c of the flour). My daughter is allergic to eggs, so I used flax meal in place of the egg (1tbsp flax meal and 3tbsp water).
They came out pretty yummy, but next time I'll use some brown sugar/cinnamon on top to make the a little sweeter.
I made this recipe almost exactly and it was just ok. The only change I made was tossing the blueberries in a little flour before adding to the mix so they don't sink to the bottom. The muffins were nice and fluffy - so A+ on that. The flavor was just ok, not bad, just nothing over the top. I would recommend using low-fat buttermilk instead of skim, butter not necessary and when just soft, doesn't mix well. Try adding in some vanilla or plain Greek yogurt.
Very tasty, and the brown sugar really takes away some of the blandness that comes with whole wheat baking....I cut the brown sugar down to just a small sprinkling on top of each muffin, maybe 2tsp total and omitted the cinnamon....very tasty muffin, will definitely make again!
