Blueberry Muffins




1 tsp brown sugar

1 tbls bran flakes

1 pinch cinnamon powder




Preheat oven to 400° F. Grease and flour a 12 muffin pan.

Rinse, drain, and dry the blueberries; pick them over, removing any stems, leaves, green or over-ripe ones.

In a large bowl, mix the flours with the salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a tiny bowl, combine the topping ingredients using the back of a spoon or tip of a wooden spoon.

Pour cup oil into a measuring cup and add the honey to the cup line. In a medium sized bowl, whisk the egg and the buttermilk; mix in the oil and honey mixture and blend vigorously. Mix in the lemon juice and zest.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture all at once. Stir sparingly, then fold in the blueberries carefully.

Spoon batter evenly into muffin compartments, tidying up any spillovers using a rubber spatula; or, use the Ice Cream Scoop Technique . . . Sprinkle batter with topping mixture. Bake in a 400° F oven for 12-15 minutes, until muffins spring back when lightly pressed.

Allow muffins to cool for five minutes before prying around the edges with a plastic knife. Cool on wire rack or serve immediately with butter.
