Blueberry Granola Whole Wheat Muffins Shopping List:

Flours: A 50/50 mixture of whole wheat and all purpose flours. 

Buttermilk: You can use fresh buttermilk or powdered. If you use powdered buttermilk, whisk the powder into the dry ingredients and add the equivalent amount of water to the wet ingredients. 

Blueberries

Pantry Ingredients: Brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, pinch of salt, egg, pure vanilla extract, nutmeg. 

Granola: You can use store bought or homemade granola. There are lots of kinds of granola available, but the main ingredients are typically oats, nuts, and sometimes dried fruit. You add half of the granola to the muffin batter and use the rest to top the muffins. 

Now that I've made these muffins, I may just keep some granola on hand for topping muffins, like an easy peasy streusel.

This recipe makes just four muffins, perfect for a small household. 

How to Make These Blueberry Granola Muffins:

First, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. Stir in half of the granola. 

Next, in a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, brown sugar, egg, vegatable oil, and vanilla together. 

After that, pour the wet ingedients into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in the blueberries and divide the batter among four standard sized greased or paper lined muffin tins. Top each one with a tablespoon of granola. 

Finally, bake the muffins at 350 degrees F for about 18 minutes.

Be sure to add about a 1/4 cup of water to each of the empty muffin tin cavities to prevent them from browning too much while in the oven. 

These muffins are a wonderful combination of moistness and crunchiness, and using the granola as a streusel is so easy! 

If the granola you have comes in big chunks, I recommend breaking it up a bit for even distribution throughout the muffins. Granola will definitely be in my muffin bag of tools for the future.

P.S. If you love the combination of granola and blueberries, be sure to try granola blueberry bars for something chewier. 

I recommend choosing a fairly simple granola. You can find it in the cereal section. It comes in bags rather than boxes and there are lots of variations. However, if a more complicated granola appeals to you, go for it. The granola is not part of the chemistry of the dough for baking.
