Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins (egg free)

I love cornbread. and muffins. and blueberries.  So naturally, I thought, why not throw them all together and see what it's like! 
They are pretty much what the name implies, a cross between cornbread and a blueberry muffin.  These are not sweet, like I think of a breakfast muffin.  I served these with dinner, and loved the flavor and texture of the cornmeal.  I will even increase the cornmeal to flour ratio next time I make them.  And of course, I love me some blueberries!  You could add sugar on top for a sweeter muffin.

Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins from allrecipes.com - slightly adapted by Mo'Betta 
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 cup AP & 1/4 cup whole wheat - couldn't resist adding a little!)
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries I used frozen since that's what I had on hand
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable canola oil
  • 2 egg whites (one "flax" egg - 1 T. milled flax seed with 3 T. warm water)
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and oil just until mixed. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter add flax seed to warm water and let sit a few minutes until thickened, add to flour mixture.  Gently fold in blueberries. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.
They rose nicely and held together well, no eggs needed!

So, Hot Cross Buns yesterday, Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins today....I think I'm a carb addict.
