Easy Blueberry Muffins 

2/3 cup (135g) sugar
1/2 tsp (3g) salt
2 1/2 cups (300g) all-purpose flour
1 Tbs (15g) baking powder
1 large egg
1/3 cup (80mL) vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups (300mL) reduced-fat (2%) milk
1 tsp (5mL) vanilla extract
1 cup (150g) fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).

Combine the sugar, salt, flour, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, combine the liquid ingredients. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the liquid ingredients and blueberries. Mix with a fork until it forms a loose batter.

Lightly coat a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon the batter into the pan until the cups are 3/4 filled. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and the centers are firm.
