Ingredients

  • ¾ cup nonfat or low-fat buttermilk
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
  • 1¼ cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1¼ cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

Materials

Baking pan and large mixing bowl

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 ( ½-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2. Whisk buttermilk, brown sugar, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in mashed bananas.
  3. Whisk whole-wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in blueberries. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups (they will be full).
  5. Bake until the tops are golden brown and a wooden skewer inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove and let cool on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes more before serving.
