WHOLE WHEAT SPLENDA BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

I recreated my original blueberry muffin recipe by using splenda, and more whole wheat flour than all purpose, and they turned out very good. It was great knowing they were healthier than the original version, and they tasted really good, and were bursting with the flavors from the frozen blueberries that I used. By adding the nonfat dry milk in the recipe because I was baking with splenda granular, that helped to give them the proper amount of volumn to rise. My husband especially enjoyed them.
