Yummy Blueberry Muffins

I made these this morning for the first time. I am always a little skeptical of recipes that substitute applesauce for butter. But these are winners! Elliot gave them two thumbs up which means they will be around a few times a month (at least).

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl combine:
--2 Cups whole wheat flour
--1/2 white sugar
--1 tsp baking soda
--1/2 tsp salt

In a medium bowl combine and lightly mix:
--1 C applesauce (I used Trader Joe's unsweetened, organic)
--1 large egg
--1tsp. vanilla extract
--2 tbsp buttermilk
--2 tbsp melted butter

Add the liquids to the dry ingredients until just combined. Add 1-1.5 C blueberries (I used frozen) and gently fold into batter.

Divide into 12 standard, lined muffin tins. Cook for 25 minutes.
