Description

These muffins are so moist and tasty that no one will know they’re healthy! A great and easy way to start your morning!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bran Cereal (such As All Bran)
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • ½ cups Melted Butter
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • 1-½ teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses
  • ⅓ cups Light Sour Cream
  • 2 whole Ripe Bananas, Mashed
  • ½ cups Whole Grain Quick Oats
  • 1-½ cup All-purpose, Unbleached Flour
  • ½ cups Wheat Germ
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1-½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 5 dashes Whole Grain Quick Oats, For Garnish

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 18 muffin tin cups with non stick cooking spray and set aside.

In small bowl, mix bran cereal with milk. Set aside to soak.

In large bowl, whip melted butter and brown sugar together. Stir in egg, vanilla extract, molasses, sour cream and mashed bananas.

In medium bowl, stir together all of the dry ingredients (everything else except the final listing for the 5 dashes of quick oats, which you’ll use for garnish). * Note: You can substitute more all purpose flour for wheat germ if you prefer.

Into the creamed mixture, alternate stirring in some of the dry ingredients with some of the bran cereal/milk mixture until all is incorporated.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 way full. Sprinkle more oats over the top and bake 15-20 minutes, checking after 15. Be sure not to over bake! Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes and remove from tins.

Serve warm with butter and jam.

I made these tonight and they are delicious! I love the texture and the hint of molasses. I’ll feel better sending my kids off to school tomorrow w/these in their tummies!

These are wonderful. I used 1/4 cup of applesauce to reduce the butter and swapped natural yogurt for the sour cream because that’s what I had on hand. I also used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose. They were stunning. So moist and tasty. Next time I’ll add some walnuts! Only 150 calories per muffin. Not bad! Try them, they’re delicious.
