Whole-Wheat Blueberry Muffins
Is it possible to create tender, light muffins using flavorful, healthy 100 percent whole-wheat flour? Common wisdom says no, but we weren’t convinced.
Why This Recipe Works
One hundred percent whole-wheat muffins can often be dense, squat sinkers that nobody wants to eat. Our goal was to fix that problem. After combining two leaveners and incorporating ingredients with high amounts of moisture (buttermilk, eggs, and blueberries) and a mix of melted butter and oil with 100 percent whole-wheat flour, we were ecstatic to find our blueberry muffins as tender as they are. After a sprinkle of streusel on the top of the muffin, we now had a tender, slightly sweet whole-wheat muffin with that signature nutty, whole-wheat flavor.
