Course Breakfast
Servings 6 regular muffins
Calories 190 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup low-fat granola
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup 100% grape juice
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper cups.
  • Place the granola in a heavy-duty plastic bag and crush it lightly with a rolling pin or other heavy object to break up any large clumps. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until blended.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the grape juice, egg, oil, sugar and lemon zest until incorporated. Add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients, blend and stir with a rubber spatula until homogenized. Fold in the blueberries.
  • Fill the prepared muffin cups about two-thirds with batter. Sprinkle with the granola and pat it in lightly so that it adheres.
  • Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake until the tops are golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes.*
  • Run a small knife around the edges and turn the muffins out onto a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve at room temperature.
  • To make mini muffins, you will need 3 mini muffin pans (1 1/8 inch by 3/4 inch). Bake mini muffins 12-14 minutes.
