*These are not super sweet muffins. But, they are good. Think: a healthy muffin. :)
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg (egg substitute is 1 tablespoon ground flax seed and 3 tablespoons water)
3/4 cup (soy) milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
For Blueberry muffins: add 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
*optional: Streusel Topping (at bottom)
(Picture shown above does not have streusel topping)
Grease muffin cups (I use a stoneware pan that does not require greasing)
In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix and make a well/hole in the center.
In another bowl combine egg, milk, and oil. Mix and add to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened.
Spoon into cups about two-thirds full. (Sprinkle *topping over muffin cups)
Bake 18-20 minutes at 400' (or until toothpick comes out clean). Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm.
* Streusel Topping
