BLUEBERRY BUCKLE MUFFINS
Updated post from 2011.
These blueberry coffee muffins are so good. As you read the recipe you’ll see that I use whole wheat pastry flour to make these. I like to use whole wheat pastry flour and oats whenever I can. Even if it’s just a little bit. That being said if you don’t have whole wheat pastry flour you can just use regular all purpose flour instead.
- Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
- All Purpose Flour
- Brown Sugar
- Nutmeg (optional)
- Unsalted Butter
- Vanilla Powder (optional)
To make streusel in a bowl combine all dry ingredients whole wheat pastry flour, all purpose flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg (optional), oats, salt and vanilla powder (optional). Then add room temperature butter. Press butter into the dry ingredients until you have a coarse texture formed. If you have Vanilla Set aside.

1st whisk together whole wheat pastry flour, all purpose flour, salt, baking powder. In a small dish whisk together egg and vanilla extract. Rinse blueberries and set them aside to drain.
I DON’T HAVE BUTTERMILK, WHAT ELSE CAN I USE?
In this recipe I also use buttermilk. You can make your own quick buttermilk. Measure 3/4 cup milk into a small bowl. remove 1tsp milk and replace it with 1 tsp white distilled vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes. Then stir again before adding it to the muffin batter.
Beat room temperature unsalted butter until creamy. Then gradually in 2 additions beat in egg mixture. Beat until pale in color and creamy. Turn the mixer on lowest setting and beat in flour mixture alternating with buttermilk. Once mixture is almost homogeneous stop beating. Toss blueberries with 1tbsp flour and fold them into the batter.
FILL THE MUFFIN PAN
With a 1/4 ice cream scoop spoon blueberry buckle muffin batter into the prepared muffin pan.
Top each unbaked muffin with a generous 1/8 cup of streusel.

I DON’T HAVE WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR, CAN I USE REGULAR ALL PURPOSE FLOUR INSTEAD?
Yes, you can use all purpose flour instead. Use 1/2 cup buttermilk if using only all purpose flour.
CAN I USE OTHER FRUIT?
You can definitely use other fruit. Raspberry, peaches, strawberries. And you can also use frozen fruit, too.
CAN I USE WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR INSTEAD OF WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR?
Yes, you can you use whole wheat pastry flour, however I personally prefer using Whole wheat pastry flour. Whole wheat pastry flour contains less gluten and more carbohydrates than Whole Wheat Flour. Thus resulting in tender, softer cookies, pastries, brownies and cakes. And it’s my choice of flour when making graham crackers, too.
MY WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR, WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR SMELLS FUNNY, SHOULD I TOSS IT?
It sounds like your whole wheat flours have gone rancid. Toss them, there is not saving them now. Next time store these flours in the fridge or in the freezer. As you may already know Whole Grain Flours contain wheat germ that contains oil. Over time this healthy oil goes bad. Basically it goes rancid and the smell and taste is unpleasant.
