56 g dried blueberries
60 g all-bran cereal (Kellogg's or Weetabix)

Recipe Directions for Wheat Bran Muffins - With a Twist

  1. Spray non-stick muffin tin with non-stick spray. Wipe around with paper towel to reduce carry-over and spread evenly.

  2. Pre-heat oven to 400 F.

  3. In bowl, combine all dry ingredients. (Dry fruit, nuts, protein powder, flower, leavening agents.)

  4. Make a well in center, set to side.

  5. In another bowl combine applesauce, milk, honey (may need to microwave honey to make liquid), eggs, oil.

  6. Dump liquid mixture all at once into well in dry mixture bowl.

  7. Stir just until moistened. Batter should be lumpy.

  8. Spoon into muffin cups, filling 2/3 full.

  9. Place in oven and turn heat down to 375. Don't open oven till done.

  10. Bake for 20 mins - or until golden. (For me - this should probably have been at about 15 mins.)

  11. Cool on wire rack for 5 mins then remove muffins from tray and either serve warm or let cool and then refrigerate.
