i'm starved

It is almost dinner time and I am starved.
My plan was to make pizza but it seems like too much work
and it doesn't sound good.

Instead, I want blueberry muffins.
I don't have all the ingredients and
I don't want to go to the store.

I will share the recipe and maybe they will magically appear.

I got this recipe from my mentor teacher. Not sure where she got it but I think they are really good and they are pretty healthy. 112 calories for one muffin.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground allspice (or use a little nutmeg, cloves and more cinnamon)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup lowfat buttermilk
2 Tbsp canola oil
2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly spray muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners. In large bowl, combine flours, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and allspice. In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, oil, applesauce and egg. Make a well with the dry ingredients. Pour in buttermilk mixture, stirring until just combined. Stir in blueberries. Pour batter into muffin cups.
Bake until tops are golden, 20-25 min.

Eat them while there warm.
I like butter and honey on mine but I also think they are good plain.
