Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Although these muffins don't have the absolute cleanest ingredients, they are still a healthier option than your blueberry muffins you'd pick up in the bakery aisle at the grocery store. I LOVE these, and they are the perfect thing to make ahead of time and stick right in the freezer to save for a busy week. That is, if you have any to save... give them a try!


Prep time: 15 minutes / Cook time: 15 minutes / Servings: 12


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1/4 cup oat bran

1/4 cup quick cooking oats

1/4 cup wheat germ

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup blueberries

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 banana, mashed

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan, or line with paper muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, oat bran, quick-cooking oats, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gently stir in the blueberries and walnuts. In a separate bowl, mix together the mashed banana, buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix just until blended. Spoon into muffin cups, filling all the way to the top.
  3. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly touched.
