In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, table salt and cinnamon. In a smaller bowl, whisk to combine buttermilk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. Using a rubber spatula, slowly and gently fold the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture, carefully stirring the batter so there are no clumps of flour, about 10 strokes. Batter will be thick and not completely smooth. In a small bowl, toss the frozen and dried blueberries with a pinch of flour, and add them to the batter, folding them in gently.
Use an ice cream scoop to divide batter among 12 muffin cups; cups will be nearly full. Sprinkle tops of muffins with coarse sugar if desired. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let cool slightly.
Serving Size: Makes 12 muffins

This is weird.. I did some changes to your recipe like used a 1/4 cup truvia sugar blend, 2 egg white's instead of whole egg, no dried blueberries, used skim milk and my recipe came out at 133 cals per muffin. Didn't make sense. So I put your recipe into the calculator and came out 173 cal per?? - 1/7/13
I LIKE blueberries, so I fixed this recipe. The muffins tasted like they should be a light desert. For my 2nd muffin, I put a little water in a small pan, added 2 packets of Splenda & added a handful of frozen blueberries & reduced it slowly. Wife & son both thought it was a great, light dessert. - 12/23/12
If you check the breakdown of ingredients per muffin you will see that the canola oil was left off the list, so I presume that this affected the calorie count. It sounds like a very tasty recipe. I will try it in the future, but using Splenda to reduce the calorie count a little. Thank you. - 6/22/13
