  3. In a great big bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon (optional), granola and dried blueberries.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the wet ingredients: vanilla, applesauce (or oil), milk and lemon juice.
  5. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fold until just combined. Do NOT overmix.
  6. Divide between the 12 muffin wells. They can be filled all the way to the top.
  7. Sprinkle extra ½ cup granola on top of each muffin. Press gently to adhere to the batter.

Notes
If using fresh/frozen blueberries, reduce the liquid by 3 tablespoons.

Please weigh the flour for best results. If the flour cannot be weighed, spoon the flour out of the container into a measuring cup.
