A Healthy Bran Muffin Recipe
This healthy bran muffin recipe ended up being quite a pleasant surprise…because at first I really had my doubts! I promised to find some nutritious, low-calorie recipes for you…but the honest truth is that it’s been a challenge. My brain just doesn’t wrap around a muffin with no butter or oil! Seriously, these easy all-bran muffins are hearty and filling. They are not overly sweet, but the texture really makes up for that. I used pomegranate Craisins instead of raisins and that helps to add a burst of extra sweetness to these bran muffins.
Easy Bran Muffins
Kellogg’s All-Bran cereal comes in these little buds and they work great in recipes. The batter isn’t thick, so it’s very easy to pour into the muffin cups. I had enough batter to fill the cups almost to the rim. I’m not sure what it would do to the calorie count, but I’m pretty sure you could substitute oatmeal for the all-bran, as well as whole wheat flour for the white flour. This is a great healthy bran muffin recipe to use as a base, and add ingredients that you have on hand or that you know your family likes.
