Low-Fat Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Low-Fat Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 eggs (1/4 c. dry egg powder + 1/2 c. water)
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 c. + 2 T. bean puree
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups blueberries (1-1/2 c. freeze dried blueberries, hydrated and drained)
  • • 2 tbsp. sugar

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two 12 cup muffin tins with paper liners. (This recipe won't work without them.) In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sour cream until thoroughly combined. Add bean puree and brown sugar. Stir in the oats. Fold in the flour mixture and then, very gently, fold in the berries. Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full. Drop a generous pinch of sugar onto the top of each muffin.

Bake the muffins for 25 to 28 minutes, or until the edges are medium brown and the tops are firm. Cool for 5 minutes; then remove muffins (in their papers) and finish cooling them on a rack.

Makes 2 dozen muffins.
