I found this recipe in my 'What to Eat When You're Expecting' book, and just made them tonight.  WOW.  There is no added sugar, and I cannot believe how good they are - my husband even liked them! 

3/4 cup flour of choice (if GF, add 1/2 teaspoon xantham gum)

1/4 cup ground flaxseed

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1 cup white grape juice concentrate (in the frozen juice section)

1/2 cup all-fruit blueberry preserves

2 large eggs

3 Tablespoons canola oil

2 teaspoons vanilla

3/4 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 cup dried blueberries

Preheat oven to 400.  Line a muffin pan with paper liners (Cook's note:  I didn't have any liners, so I sprayed with non-stick spray.  They emerged close to being burned, but they were slightly crispy on the outside, which was good, too).

Place the first 5 ingredients in a bowl and mix.  In a separate bowl, combine the next 5 ingredients.  Add the blueberry mixture to the flour mixture and stir gently until blended - do not overmix.  Gently fold in the frozen and dried blueberries.  (Cook's note: the batter sort of 'fizzes up' here, and is pretty liquidy.  I would let it sit a couple minutes until it thickens).  Spoon the batter into the muffin pan, and bake about 20 minutes or so - can use the toothpick test.  (Note: Fill the cups about 3/4 full with batter.  The recipe says it will make 12 muffins, but mine made about 18.  And the last 6 turned out better because I'd let the batter sit for a couple minutes). 

Enjoy!!
