This wholegrain breakfast muffins recipe is adaptable, easy and so tasty.


  • 1/2 cup oat flour

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup canola oil

  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

  • 1 cup berries, chopped fruit, nuts or chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a standard muffin pan with paper liners, and set aside.

  • In a bowl, whisk together ½ cup each oat flour, whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, and ½ tsp each baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add ¼ cup each white and packed light brown sugar. Whisk to combine.

  • In another bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs, ½ cup canola oil and ¾ cup buttermilk (shake well before measuring).

  • Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients, and stir until just combined. Stir in 1 cup of your favourite add-in: berries, chopped fruit, nuts or chocolate chips. Divide among prepared muffin cups.
