3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon brown sugar
3/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup rolled oats

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. In a bowl whisk together whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ, baking powder, salt, and 2/3 cup brown sugar. Make a well in center of bowl and add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Gently mix until just combined. Fold in blueberries.
  2. Divide batter among muffin cups. Combine 2 Tbsp. toasted wheat germ, 1 Tbsp. brown sugar, and rolled oats in a small bowl. Sprinkle over tops of muffins. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes. Let sit in pan 10 minutes. Transfer muffins to a rack to cool.

Healthful Tip: These are great for breakfast with some plain Greek yogurt or some scrambled egg whites. The calorie count is too high for a snack if you need to add a protein.
