Spiced Blueberry Muffins

This recipe comes from Cooking Light (Annual Recipes 2005), however I have adapted it to use 100% Whole White Wheat Flour (King Arthur).

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar (reduce if desired, substitute sucanet if desired)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen wild blueberries
1 Tbsp flour
1/3 cup butter, softened
8 oz light cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup 2% milk (I used 1%)
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425.
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cups. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Make a well in center.
Place blueberries in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp flour over them; toss to coat.
Place butter and cream cheese in a medium bowl, beat with a mixer at high speed 1 minute or until bleneded. Add milk, eggs, and vanilla to butter mixture; beat to combine. Add butter mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moist. Gently fold in blueberry mixture. Spoon bater into 14 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar with 2 tsp cinnamon, sprinkle evenly over batter. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool in pans 15 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from pans, place on wire rack.
