Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

  • Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add 1 1/2 cups buttermilk. Stir with a wooden spoon until all the flour is incorporated. The dough should be soft but not too wet. If necessary, add additional buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough absorbs all of the flour. Use your hands to help the dough come together, if necessary. Using an ice cream scoop or a 1/4-cup measure, divide the dough among the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
