- 1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup light brown sugar - packed
1/3 cup oat bran flour
1/4 cup flax seed
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tablespoons canola oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (6 ounce) Driscoll's Blueberries
1 package (6 ounce) Driscoll's Raspberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place paper liners in 18 muffin cups.
Whisk whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, oat bran flour, flax seed, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl until blended.
Stir yogurt, oil, eggs, orange juice and vanilla in a small bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into flour just until moist.
Fold in blueberries and raspberries just until combined. Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin cups.
Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
Helpful Tip: Over-stirring muffin batter tends to cause peaked tops. Use a flexible spatula or wooden spoon to combine wet and dry ingredients, and gently fold in the berries to avoid crushing.
- Instead of plain yogurt, substitute your favorite flavored yogurt
- Substitute chopped walnuts or almonds for flax seed
- Substitute almond extract for vanilla
- Substitute apple juice for orange juice
