Lightly coat the blueberries with the 2 tsp. flour. In a large bowl, mix together the 1 3/4 cup flour, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs or egg substitute lightly. Add oil, orange juice and grated rind. Add the liquid to dry mixture and stir a few times gently. Before the two mixtures are fully combined, add berries and lemon rind.
Spoon into muffin cups coated with non-stick cooking spray, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
