  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases.
  2. In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs, apple sauce, olive oil, skimmed milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Next sieve the flours and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the sugar and the wet mixture and mix well until combined. Don’t over beat, it’s OK to have a few lumps.
  4. Next add two-thirds of the blueberries and mix until just combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and scatter with the remaining blueberries. Bake for 20–25 min, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  6. Leave to cool, then dust with the icing sugar.
