1/2 cup reduced-fat buttermilk
1-1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 medium orange
1/2 cup sugar substitute
1/4 cup canola oil
1 whole egg
1 cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Stir together oats and buttermilk in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a medium bowl. Grate rind from orange and add to large bowl; squeeze 1/2 cup of orange juice and add to rind. Whisk in sugar substitute, oil, and egg until mixture is smooth. Blend oatmeal mixture, followed by flour mixture. Stir until ingredients are just combined, then gently fold in berries.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin and bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
