Whole Grain Blackberry Spice Muffins
Joy Zacharia, Cooking Light, JANUARY 2006
Yield 17 muffins (serving size: 1 muffin)
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
1/4 cup granulated sugar
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. Sprinkle muffins evenly with granulated sugar; bake 3 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool in pans 10 minutes on wire racks.

Lovely little muffins! Blackberries are so delicious.
What a great power-packed muffin recipe! Healthy and delicious! Unfortunately berries are expensive over here. 😉 Got to bookmark it first. 😉

Mmm. Blackberries are one of my very favorite berries too. Great recipe! I love the oats inside and the sugar sprinkled over the top! 🙂
Gorgeous Bonnie Dahling! Just the recipe to keep handy throughout the summer and I will be doing just that!
BTW, can I use fresh blueberries instead of frozen?
