Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

I’ve decided to put myself on a diet. Well, not just me, but my BF too. I have managed to lose my weight and I’m trying not to let it creap back up. The easiest thing to do is to make myself eat more fruits and veggies and start going for walks everyday with the dog, which benefits Kato and me! If only it would stop raining… we haven’t seen the sun since last week.. It makes everyone a little grouchy I think. I would definitely recommend spraying muffin tins and not using paper liners like I did, they stick to the liners..

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup reserved blueberry juice (from thawed blueberries)
1  cup blueberries frozen (thawed)

topping:
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup sugar

In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl mix the remaining ingredients together except the blue berries. Add the flour mixture until well blended and fold in the blueberries.

Bake at 350 for 25 mins. When done pierce with fork and brush the tops with milk and roll in sugar.

I must say, I like the nutty taste of the whole wheat flour and the blueberries go well with it. My oven was at 400 and they were definitely over cooked, so I recommend lowering the cooking temperature.
