Healthy Banana, Blueberry, Bran Muffins

I had some bananas that were getting really soft and needed to use them up and I wanted to make something different with them.  I usually just make Banana bran muffins but this time I wanted to use some blueberries too.  So, once again google comes to the rescue.  In google search I typed in Banana, Blueberries and Oat Bran and I came up with a recipe from called Healthy blueberry and banana muffins.  They looked good but not quite what I wanted... so I did some changes and this is what I came up with.

                                       Healthy Banana, Blueberry, Bran Muffins
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oat bran
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup banana (approx. 3 -4 mashed)
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
2 tbsp apple sauce (or use oil)
2 tsp fresh lemon juice ( I used juice of 1/2 lemon and zest)
1 1/2 cup blueberries.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Muffin tin -either spray with PAM or place liners in tins.
Mix dry ingredients together in bowl.  In separate bowl, mix bananas, milk, egg, apple sauce, lemon juice and zest.  I used my beaters to mix the wet ingredients together.  Once mixed, slowly add dry ingredients and mix with wooden spoon.  Then add blueberries.  Divide between 12 muffin tins.  Bake at 400 until tester inserted comes out clean, approx. 20 minutes.  Cool on cooling rack.

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy a healthy banana, blueberry, bran muffin.  I had mine with some Tillamook cheese that I found when I was shopping yesterday and I just might have to go and get another one.  You better come before they all are gone.
