Oatmeal Blueberry Applesauce Muffins

My favorite thing to bake with right now is blueberries, I'm putting them in everything.  I wanted to make blueberry muffins the other morning for breakfast but I wanted something a little more healthy, not so much a dessert, although we all know there is a time for that.  We really liked these, warm or cold.  They were moist and sweet and I felt good after eating them, rather than feeling like I needed to go work off the sugar and butter that makes regular blueberry muffins so irresistible.  I love blueberries for breakfast.

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
