I think it probably goes without saying, but given my previous posts about the general health of the family... it can be assumed that we live on a mostly bran diet as of late!
Ethan helped me make these most delicious muffins yesterday. He loves to bake and so when ever I am in the kitchen he is right beside me.... with his measuring cups in hand!
I found a recipe for bran muffins on the bran flake box and I hesitated making it because the picture looked awful! I think I will send them this one - I would much rather eat these muffins than the ones they had pictured!!!
Berry Special Muffins:
1 3/4 cup bran flakes
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 T lemon and enough milk to make 1 cup)
1 egg (beaten)
3 T veggie oil (or substitute with applesauce)
1 cup flour (I did 1/2 whole wheat)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 T baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1 cup frozen blueberries
(it didn't call for salt.. so you can leave it out, but I think 1/2 t of salt would be de'lish)
3/4 bran flakes (crushed
3 T brown sugar
1 T melted butter
Mix the bran and wet ingredients together and let sit for 5 mins... add the mixed dry ingredients and then fold in the blueberries. Put in muffin tins, top with amazing topping, and bake 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. Enjoy warm! (152 calories per muffin...)
Ethan thought they were delicious!
And here are Eden's thoughts: "I wonder if anyone noticed that I stole two muffins... heehhee I think I got away with it."
"Oh NO! They found me... NO you can't have them back!"
"I'm going to eat them all by myself!"
