Health Nut Blueberry Muffins
A. Maz. Ing. I LOVE these! My whole family does! My husband's first reaction was "These taste even better than the ones at (a five-star hotel)!" Which up until now had been his favorite muffins of all time.
I used only whole wheat flour, which I sifted a little first. Then I used 1/4 c. brown sugar and 1/2 c. Stevia powder in place of the 3/4 c. white sugar. Didn't have oat bran so I used wheat bran instead. Didn't have quick cooking oats, so I measured nearly double the amount of regular oats into my food chopper and chopped them down to the recommended amount. I omitted the nuts, used 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce in place of the bananas (as suggested by previous reviews), added a tsp. of lemon peel zest, and threw in an extra handful of fresh blueberries. I've made these twice now, once with frozen blueberries and once with fresh. The fresh were hands-down the better (frozen lacked flavor).
I also made my own little topping of chopped pecans mixed with a little bit of brown sugar and melted butter and added it to the tops of the muffins before baking It was a really nice addition and made them look prettier, too.
