Hello everybody! I modified this recipe from one of my favorites...

1 cup blueberries (Iused frozen, but fresh would be great!)
1 3/4 cup oat flour
1/2 cup splenda (and some for dusting blueberries)
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup buttermilk

Clean blueberries and dust with some splenda. Set aside. Combine dry ingredients. I another bowl, stir together egg, oil and buttermilk. Add to dry ingredients. Fold in blueberries. Dough will be a little stiff. Use an ice cream scoop to fill regular muffin tins about 3/4 full. Bake in a 350 degree oven until slightly brown. About 12-15 min.

I made these in mini muffin tins and just pop one in my mouth every now and then when I want a sweet. They're soooo yummy and easy and don't taste "fake".

Unfortunately not... I modified the recipe from the newspaper. If anyone knows how to do it, I'd appreciate it!

DiD you ever find out the carb count for these muffins? They sound so good and I would like to try them.

I did a quick inport to Mastercook. I did not have oat flour, so I put in oat flakes (which you grind to get oat flour). I suspect that count would be slightly worse because you need more flakes in volume to get that amount of flour, but I did it one to one.

I also assumed this makes 12.

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 110 Calories; 7g Fat (58.1% calories from fat); 2g Protein; 9g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 16mg Cholesterol; 187mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1/2 Grain(Starch); 0 Lean Meat; 0 Fruit; 0 Non-Fat Milk; 1 1/2 Fat.

Not that great really. If you dropped the buttermilk and mixed the oat flour with something lower in carbs, you could do better. In fact, the oat flakes are contributing net 5 carbs.

If you substitute one cup of almond flour and 3/4 cups of oat flour, you drop this to net 6 carbs.

I'd like to try these with carbquik now that I have some! Do you all think it would work?
