  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups whole grain sorghum flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup canola or corn oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (from 1 medium lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen, unsweetened raspberries (thawed if frozen)

2 tablespoons whole grain sorghum flour

  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons uncooked quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons light tub margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Lightly spray a standard 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the sorghum flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and the baking soda.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, 1/3 cup brown sugar, egg whites, oil, lemon zest and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture until the batter is just moistened but no flour is visible. (Don’t overmix; the batter may be slightly lumpy.) Spoon the batter into the muffin cups. Top each muffin with the raspberries.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the streusel ingredients until the texture of coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the muffins, gently pushing into the batter. Bake for 16 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Do not overbake or they will be dry.) (The USDA recommends cooking egg dishes to 160˚F.)
  5. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack. Let stand for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer the muffins to the rack. Let cool completely, about 20 minutes.
