Oat Bran Blackberry Muffins

IMG_4739

I love blackberries! These blackberry muffins are wonderful, moist, tender, and just sweet enough. We ate them warm from the oven on an unseasonably cool summer morning. A great special breakfast. 🙂 This recipe was adapted from Everyday Food. I substituted whole wheat flour for some of the all-purpose flour and sprinkled the top of the muffins with vanilla bean-infused turbinado sugar.

  • Yield: Makes 12 muffins
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 2/3 cup oat bran
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries, cut in half
  • turbinado sugar for sprinkling
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 standard muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners. Whisk together flour, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and 1/2 cup sugar on high until light and fluffy, about 6 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. With mixer on low, add flour mixture in 2 additions, alternating with buttermilk, and beat until combined. Fold in blackberries.
  3. Divide batter among muffin cups and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out with moist crumbs attached, 16 minutes (in a convection oven), rotating pan halfway through. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes, then transfer muffins to rack and let cool completely.

Note: Muffins can be stored in an airtight container, up to 3 days.
