Breakfast Blueberry Muffins

These muffins are a recreation from a recipe passed down from my mother-in-law. I made the muffins lighter and used half whole wheat flour to add more fiber. They're a great nutritious way to start your day. —Virginia Sollitt Redmond, Washington

    These muffins are kinda bland. They need some spice or something. Blueberries don't add enough flavor. Won't make again.

    Very good muffins! And I don't feel that guilty eating them :) I only used 1/2 cup of sugar, substituted natural, no-sugar-added applesauce for the oil, and added a Tblsp of ground golden flax seed. I ended up with 8 muffins instead of 6 and my kids love them! Next time I think I will use cinnamon instead of nutmeg. I'm personally just not a big nutmeg flavor fan.

    These muffins were very good, and not dry at all considering they contained whole wheat flour. This recipe has a LOT of blueberries, almost too many in my opinion, but an easy fix for next time.

    Love this recipe! I doubled it and used just 1/2 cup of sugar. I also added a tablespoon of ground flax seed. Muffins were moist and light and freeze beautifully.

    I doubled the recipe and only added half of the sugar. I added 1/3 cup orange juice and only half the oil. I also added 1/4 c. flax seed. They turned out light and tasty. I will make these again.

    I thought the muffins were very good. I doubled the recipe, and used Splenda for 1/2 of the sugar, used unsweetened apple sauce for 1/2 of the oil, added 1 Tbsp. of ground flax seed and 1 Tbsp. of wheat germ. I also used ground cloves instead of nutmeg. They were not heavy and quite healthy!

    Good for a healthy-ish muffin, but I prefer the recipes with sour cream, and no wheat flour!
