The ever popular bran muffin, made even more delicious with blueberries.
Portions: Makes 6
Preheat oven to 375° and line a 6-cup muffin tin with muffin liners. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, com- bine buttermilk, brown sugar, and wheat bran on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape bowl well to prevent dry clumps. In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to buttermilk mixture on low speed. Stream in egg, egg white, and grapeseed oil and combine on medium-low speed for 30 seconds. Add raisin purée and mix on low speed until just combined. Fold in blueberries. Fill each muffin mold ⅔ full and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until a toothpick comes out clean, 25 to 28 minutes.
