Blueberry Vanilla Muffins

Another day of Blogger Brunch Week and I’m bringing you a healthy muffin packed with blueberries and lots of deep vanilla flavor! Vanilla extract and vanilla pudding mix are both used in this recipe for flavor, and if you feel inclined to add more blueberries than my recipe calls for, feel free!

I like these muffins because you can play around with the ingredients. It uses a healthy-base recipe of white whole wheat flour, no calorie sweetener, applesauce, baking soda and egg whites — you pick what you want the flavor focus to be on! I chose vanilla and blueberries because, well, I like those flavors AND it was what I already had in the kitchen. I didn’t have to make a Publix run for this recipe! So you be the chef here… Choose your favorite fruit strawberries, bananas, raspberries, peaches, etc. Then pick a flavor to highlight. There are so many different flavored pudding mixes and extracts that the possibilities are endless. One bit of advice: Make sure to use fresh fruit instead of frozen so there is no excess water from thawing. That could make for a very mushy muffin.
