Blueberry-Maple Muffins

From: EatingWell

Whole-wheat flour and flaxseeds give these maple syrup-sweetened blueberry muffins a delicious, nutty flavor. Compared to a traditional version of the recipe, they have four times the dietary fiber and substitute healthful monounsaturated fat (canola oil) for saturated fat (butter).

Servings: 12 muffins
Prep: 30 mins

Ingredients
1/5 cup  whole flaxseeds
1 cup  whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons  all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
1 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
1/4 teaspoon  salt
2   large eggs
1/2 cup  pure maple syrup
1 cup  nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
1/4 cup  canola oil
2 teaspoons  freshly grated orange zest
1 tablespoon  orange juice
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups  fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon  sugar
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
2. Grind flaxseeds in a spice mill (such as a clean coffee grinder) or dry blender. Transfer to a large bowl. Add whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; whisk to blend. Whisk eggs and maple syrup in a medium bowl until smooth. Add buttermilk, oil, orange zest, orange juice and vanilla; whisk until blended.
3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula just until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.
4. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and spring back when touched lightly, 15 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a wire rack to cool slightly.
Tip:
Tip: No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make "sour milk" : mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
