Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) softened unsalted butter or canola oil plus more for the pan
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
Method

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper muffin liners. In a large bowl, cream together butter or oil and sugar. Stir in applesauce, eggs, orange juice and vanilla.

In a second large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, zest and salt. Stir flour mixture into butter-egg mixture until just combined. Gently stir in blueberries. Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
