Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup softened butter or canola oil, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 2/3 Cups sugar
  • 1/3 Cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup orange juice
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups spelt flour
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 Cups fresh blueberries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Butter a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper muffin liners. In a large bowl, cream together the butter or oil and sugar. Stir in the applesauce, eggs, orange juice and vanilla extract.

In a second large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, zest, and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the butter-egg mixture until just combined. Gently stir in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into muffin cups and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Blueberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Blueberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
