These are really good. I made them a few weeks back, and like the recipes says, froze the muffins. Then I'd pop one out when I wanted something different for breakfast. I subsituted the egg for egg beaters, and cinnamon for the apple pie spice because I didn't have any. Also, I'm sure you could substitute the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour for an even healthier option.
Whole-Grain Blackberry Spice Muffins
Coarsely chop frozen blackberries, and place them back in the freezer until ready to stir into the batter. To freeze muffins, let cool completely, and place in zip-top plastic bags. Reheat in microwave 20 seconds.
2 cups all-purpose flour (about 9 ounces)
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon apple-pie spice
1 cup fat-free milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups frozen blackberries, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 400°.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients (through apple-pie spice) in a large bowl. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine milk, butter, vanilla, and egg in a small bowl; add to flour mixture, stirring until just moist. Gently stir in blackberries.
Spoon 1/4 cup batter into each of 17 paper-lined muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 16 minutes. Bake 3 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool in pans 10 minutes on wire racks.
