Anna's Blueberry Muffins For Diabetics

Another winner from "Our Family Recipes", the Princess Margaret Home & School Association cookbook. Submitted by Anna Sigurdson. By making just a few changes to the original, you can make this high fibre muffin very diabetic friendly. Looks good!

1/2 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend OR 1/4 cup brown sugar + 1/2 cup Splenda OR omit brown sugar altogether.
3/4 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
grated rind of 1 orange
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (if using frozen berries, do not thaw before adding to batter)

In a large bowl, combine Splenda, oats, flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and orange rind.

In a small bowl, beat milk, oil and egg together; pour over dry ingredients and mix gently, just until moistened. Gently fold in blueberries.

Spoon into large greased or paper-lined muffin cups, filling 3/4 full. Bake at 400 * F for 15- 20 minutes, or until tops are firm to the touch.

Makes 12 muffins.
