A few years ago, my loving husband had 3 heart stents done on him and I started cooking healthy. These blueberry muffins are easy to make and so delicious. My family and friends love them because they're light and healthy. Enjoy along with a cup of coffee or tea. Bon Appetite

How To Make healthy blueberry muffins

  • 1
    Place the rack in the top third of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 F, line 18 muffin tins with paper liner and spray with Pam.
  • 2
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange zest. Add the fresh blueberries and toss gently to coat the blueberries in flour. This will help keep the blueberries suspended in the batter versus falling to bottom.
  • 3
    In a mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs, then whisk in the buttermilk, brown sugar, canola oil, orange juice, and vanilla. Don't be concerned if the mixture looks curdled and lumpy.
  • 4
    Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until most of the flour is incorporated. The mixture can be slightly lumpy, don't over-mix. Divide the batter among the 18 prepared muffin cups. Bake 14-15 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown around the edges.
