Delicious and (gasp!) Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Who doesn’t love a blueberry muffin?  If not blueberry, then how about raspberry, cranberry, banana, almond, or (my favorite) chocolate chip?delicious and healthy blueberry muffins

A few months ago I came down with some kind of stomach flu and to be very careful about what I ate.  This forced me to cut out things like dairy products, white flour, and white sugar.

Now, I have a serious sweet tooth, so this task of giving up some of my favorite things like white bread or anything made with white flour gave me a near panic attack.  I have give up what now?  Uh, no whey… (see what I did there?)

Despite my massive misgivings, I discovered that I can easily substitute white flour for wheat flour, and white sugar for honey.  It takes a little experimentation to get the consistency right, but the results are absolutely delicious!  I even went so far as to bake cookies, muffins, and even fried chicken using whole wheat flour and my family didn’t even know the difference.  Yay for tricking my kids into eating healthy!

So, I have found the blueberry muffin recipe that is incredibly delicious but with substitutions for the white flour, white sugar, and unsalted butter.

The photo above as well as the recipe below are from Jenn Segal and her website Once Upon a Chef.  I recommend you check out her recipe BEST BLUEBERRY MUFFINS for tips and techniques.  I like hers so much because she uses ALMOND extract in addition to vanilla extract.  I also use almond extract with my french toast 🙂
