 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/3  cups          all-purpose flour
      2/3  cup           whole-wheat flour
    2      teaspoons     baking powder
      1/4  teaspoon      baking soda
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    2      teaspoons     ground cinnamon
      1/2  teaspoon      nutmeg
      3/4  cup           blueberries -- fresh
    7      tablespoons   unsalted butter -- softened
      2/3  cup           granulated sugar
    1                    large egg
    1 1/2  teaspoons     vanilla extract
      3/4  cup           banana -- mashed
      1/4  cup           nonfat buttermilk
 
 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Lightly coat the inside of muffin-pan
 cups with nonstick cookware spray.
 
 Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder,
 baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Toss the blueberries with 2
 teaspoons of the flour mixture and set aside.
 
 Beat the butter in the large bowl of an electric mixer on moderate speed
 for 4 minutes.  Add the sugar, increase the speed to moderately high and
 beat for 2 minutes.  Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.  Beat in the
 mashed bananas (the mixture will look slightly curdled), half the flour
 mixture, the buttermilk, then the balance of the flour mixture.  By hand,
 fold in the blueberries.
 
 Divide the batter among the muffin cups.  Bake the muffins in the preheated
 oven for about 20 minutes, or until plump and a wooden pick inserted in the
 center withdraws clean.
 
 Let the muffins stand in the pan on a cooling rack for 4 to 5 minutes, then
 carefully remove them to another rack.
