This recipe is from a wonderful recipe on The Gracious Pantry website. I began my Clean Eating lifestyle eating these every morning for breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. honey (add more if needed)
  • 1/4 c. olive oil or safflower oil
  • 3/4 c. low-fat milk (use only 1/2 c. if you are adding frozen blueberries)
  • 2 tsp. lemon extract
  • 4 T. fresh lemon zest
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 - 1 c. blueberries

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin pan with cupcake papers or spray the pan with an olive oil mister.

Step 2

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together your flour and baking soda.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, blend the rest of the ingredients using a whisk.

Step 4

Add the flour to the wet ingredients a little at a time, whisking as you go. Fold in the blueberries.

Step 5

Pour batter into your pan. Fill up the cups 1/2 - 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

Note: Remember, if you use fresh fruit, don't make any other adjustments. Just add the fruit. If you are using frozen fruit, reduce the milk to 1/2c.
