Blueberry-Maple Muffins

Summer 2004, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (263 votes)

Whole-wheat flour and flaxseeds give these maple syrup-sweetened blueberry muffins a delicious, nutty flavor. Compared to a traditional version of the recipe, they have four times the dietary fiber and substitute healthful monounsaturated fat (canola oil) for saturated fat (butter).

"awesome with frozen blueberries(cheaper) and i switched the flours to more white for my kids. they devoured them! "

A Good Light Snack

Since discovering this recipe I have made it about 4 times within 1 month. Despite many other comments indicating these muffins aren't so great, my husband and I really enjoy them. Instead of flaxseeds I use natural wheat bran, it's what I have in my cupboard right now. I left out the orange zest, but added an extra tablespoon of orange juice to the recipe (so 2 tbsp. went in). I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones. In efforts to make the recipe a little sweeter, instead of using only 1/2 cup maple syrup, I put 3/4 cups. I do not sprinkle the tops with sugar. I like how these muffins are very low in sugar yet high in fiber.

Lots of blueberries

Did anyone try using 1 cup of maple syrup instead of the called for 1/2 cup to make it sweeter? I'm going to try this.

Bland, even with added sugar

I followed all the directions, but did add a 1/4 cup of white sugar as some other reviewers suggested. These are horribly bland. The only time you get any flavor is when you hit a blueberry. Will not make again. Cannot taste the maple syrup, either.

Made these today, they turned out great, used a bit more flax seed and fresh squeezed orange juice. My kids loved them. I will make them again!
