Lemon-Blueberry Corn Muffins

Bake the batter in a nonstick mini angel food pan (or similar) for a pretty presentation. This is a great way to work some fruit, whole grains, and plant omega-3 fatty acids (from canola oil) into your morning.


  • 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal (finely ground works best)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar-substitute
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lemon, zested, finely chopped (about 1 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 3/4 cup fat-free half-and-half or low-fat milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 2 cups frozen or fresh berries


Step 1
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 15 muffin cups with paper or foil liners.
Step 2
Whisk together the flours, cornmeal, sugar, sugar-substitute, baking powder, salt and lemon zest in a large bowl.
Step 3
Add canola oil, fat-free half-and-half, egg and egg substitute to a large mixing bowl and beat on medium until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture to the batter in the mixing bowl, while beating on low speed, until just combined.
Step 4
Gently stir in blueberries and spoon batter into prepared muffin cups using a 1/4-cup measuring cup. Bake until a tester inserted in center of largest muffin comes out clean (about 18 minutes).
