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.

It felt very good to be in my kitchen with these bran muffins baking in the oven. Like many times before, I read your comments on my last post through tears. Many of you have been in my shoes and I can’t tell you how comforting it is to know that I’m not alone. Even though things around here are sometimes out of sorts, I have pieces of days that feel normal. Those pieces are because of this blog and all of you. My heart is filled with gratitude.
