  • 1 cup blueberries, picked over and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

  • 2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon or orange rind, grated


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.
