Blue Berry Muffins-hello!

My friend, Chris, dropped off a warm muffin on my doorstep before work the other day and it was soooo good. They are actually kind of healthy too. I asked her for the recipe and here it is:



Whole Wheat-Blueberry Muffins Whole wheat flour and a touch of honey update classic blueberry muffins. From eatbetteramerica.
Prep Time:15 min
Start to Finish:35 min
makes:12 muffins
Topping
2
tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
Muffins
3/4
cup fat-free (skim) milk
1/4
cup canola or soybean oil
1/4
cup honey
1
egg
1
cup all-purpose flour
1
cup whole wheat flour
3
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
cup fresh blueberries
1.
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or place paper baking cup in each muffin cup. In small bowl, stir together topping ingredients; set aside.
2.
In large bowl, beat milk, oil, honey and egg with spoon until well blended. Stir in flours, baking powder and salt just until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be lumpy). Gently fold in blueberries.
3.
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (cups will be full). Sprinkle with topping.
4.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and muffins are golden brown. Immediately remove from pan.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Decrease baking powder to 2 teaspoons. If using paper baking cups, spray with cooking spray before adding batter.

Thanks for this recipe. I always like to try new whole wheat recipes. I am going to try it tomorrow. I think the boys will love it and I will probably eat 3 in one sitting.
