My favorite add-ins for muffins are chocolate chips and/or any kind of berry.  My in-laws currently have blueberry bushes, so I’m always excited when they have extra.  I enjoy berries from the store too, but you can’t beat the taste when they’re fresh off the bushes.

So, if you have any fresh blueberries lying around, these muffins are the a great way to use them!  Of course, if you’re like me, the berries may not make it into the batter.

  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  In a medium sized bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, almond flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

In large bowl, cream butter, Sucanat, honey, and unsweetened applesauce together.  Mix in egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice.  Slowly add in yogurt and flour mixture, alternating, just until mixed.  Gently fold in blueberries.
