Low fat Eggless Blueberry muffins

Recipe adapted from joyofbaking with some healthy changes. I replaced All purpose flour with wheat flour and egg with low fat yoghurt.My daughter loves blueberry a lot. Eventhough this little fruit tastes delicious as such, its flavour and sweetness is enhanced when added in baked goods.



Ingredients
Wheat flour                                 3/4 cup
All purpose flour1/4 cup
Blueberries3/4 cup
Sugar1/3 cup
Reduced fat Yoghurt3/4 cup
Baking powder3/4 tsp
Baking soda1/8 tsp
Vanilla extract3/4 tsp
Canola oil/Corn oil/vegetable oil1/8 cup


The above measurement yields 6 regular sized muffins
Procedure:
Step1:
Mix together flour,sugar,baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl


Step2:
Take 1 tablespoon of dry ingredients and toss it with the blueberries. Just coat the berries with the flour well so that it does not sink to the bottom while baking.(Don't skip this step)


Step3:
In a separate bowl whisk the curd and add oil, vanila extract and mix well


Step4:
Mix both wet and dry ingredients together.Do not overmix


Step5:
Gently fold in  the blueberries coated with flour




Step6:
Pout the batter in muffin pan and bake in preheated oven of 375F for around 20 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean
Bake in the center rack


Notes:
  • Just double the recipe for 12 muffins
  • I used store bought reduced fat yogurt.Homemade thick curd can also be used
  • If using frozen blueberries do not thaw
  • Do not over mix the batter.Otherwise the muffins will turn hard
  • While baking the muffins can crack on top.That is quite normal
  • It is better to use a muffin/cupcake liner as the blueberries will stick to the sides
