Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. flour

  • 3/4 c. white sugar
  • 1/4 c. oat bran
  • 1/4 c. quick cooking oats
  • 1/4 c. wheat germ

  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper muffin cups.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flours, sugar, oat bran, oats, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gently stir in the blueberries and pecans. (If using frozen blueberries, stir them in while frozen.)
