We call these "power" muffins because they're loaded with B vitamins from whole-wheat flour, calcium from milk and yogurt, antioxidants from blueberries, and heart-friendly monounsaturated fat from almonds and canola oil. You can freeze these muffins for up to a month, then thaw them at room temperature, or microwave each frozen muffin at HIGH 15 to 20 seconds.
6.75 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)
4.8 ounces whole-wheat flour (about 1 cup)
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups vanilla low-fat yogurt
1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/4 cup)
1/4 cup slivered almonds, chopped
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
To prepare muffins, weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, oats, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine yogurt and next 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into 24 muffin cups coated with cooking spray, filling two-thirds full.
To prepare streusel, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients, stirring until crumbly. Sprinkle streusel evenly over batter.
Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool in pans 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pans. Serve warm or at room temperature.
