Baked Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins
When I bring treats to share with the staff at my school, I try to keep most of the goodies healthy. These moist muffins definitely are, and the cornmeal adds an interesting texture. —Elizabeth Bergeron, Denver, Colorado
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 3/4 cup fat-free milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- In a small bowl, combine the cornmeal, flours, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
