Healthier Blueberry Muffins

My kids love muffins, but it can be tough to find recipes for healthy muffins that don’t taste like dry pieces of toast.  While I plan to still tweak this recipe to up the nutrition some, this is the mostly healthy blueberry muffin recipe I came up this morning while doing some baking for our upcoming vacation.  I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious the muffins taste!

Makes 24 muffins.

Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 and 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 and 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana
  • 2 cups blueberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease or line with paper liners 24 muffins cups.

Combine oats, flour, baking powder, flaxseed, and salt in a large bowl.

Add the honey, milk, eggs, and mashed banana. Stir until well combined.

Gently fold blueberries into batter.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake for 18 minutes or so, or until an inserted toothpick comes out dry.

*I used to think honey was a real pain to measure, until I picked up this tip: Spray your measuring cup with cooking spray before pouring honey into the cup. The cooking spray will cause the honey to slip right out of the cup into your bowl.

    I’ve been cooking with honey and flax seed a lot more lately and we really love it.  Thanks for the recipe!
