Steel-Cut Oatmeal and Blueberry Muffins - 30g Carbs, 3g Fiber


Make more oatmeal than you need for breakfast, and use the leftovers in
these moist, nourishing muffins. Also blueberries are full of antioxidents and helps with memory loss.

1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs(or egg substitute)
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup cooked steel-cut oats
1 cup blueberries tossed with 1 teaspoon flour

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees with the rack positioned in the upper
third. Use 12 muffin paper liner cups.

Sift together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt.

In another bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk (or yogurt and milk),
canola oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Quickly stir in the dry ingredients
with a whisk or a spatula. Do not over beat, just mix, stirring up from the
bottom until you can no longer see flour. A few lumps are fine. Fold in
the cooked oats and the blueberries. HINT (Cover blueberries in flour and they won’t sink to the bottom of your muffins)

Spoon into muffin cups, filling them to just below the top. Place in the
oven, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until nicely browned. Remove from the
heat, and allow to cool for 10 minutes before unmolding. Cool on a rack,
or serve warm.

Advance preparation:
These keep for a couple of days out of the refrigerator, for a few
