Black and Blue Muffins

Pin It Breakfast food is amazing any time of day.  I love having a muffin as a snack.  I also love sharing breakfast goodies with others.  These were sent to work with my husband along with some Snickerdoodle Muffins and all I got back was an empty platter.  I also tried to make these healthier by adding some whole wheat flour and substituting some of the oil with applesauce.  If whole wheat isn't your thing feel free to use all white flour. 

Black and Blue Muffins
1 1/2 cups allpurpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/8 cup oil
1/8 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup blueberries
3/4 cup blackberries

2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously spray muffin pans with cooking spray.
2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices in a bowl.
3. Make a well in the middle and add wet ingredients to the middle. Stir with a fork until just combined. Batter will be lumpy.
4. Stir in berries.
5. In a separate bowl use a pastry cutter or fork to cut butter  into flour and sugar until it forms pea size balls. 
6. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle topping on top of muffins.
7. Bake 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
