Banana Blueberry Muffins
In an effort to be thoughtful of my sweets heart.. I decided to try these muffins from my American Heart Association cookbook. They turned out nicer than I thought they might, given the ingredients that they called for!
Vegetable oil spray
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole-wheat flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup wheat germ
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 medium banana, mashed
1/3 cup acceptable margarine, melted and cooled
Egg substitute equivalent to 1 egg
½ cup orange juice
1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed and stems removed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray muffin tin with vegetable oil.
In a bowl, combine flours, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, salt and spices. Stir until well mixed. Set aside.
In another bowl, mash banana. Add margarine, egg substitute, and orange juice to it. Whisk until well blended. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients, mixing just until moistened. (Mixture may be lumpy.) With rubber spatula, carefully fold blueberries into batter. Pour batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Bake 15 minutes.
