Oat Bran Muffins

EmailPinterest53Facebook4Twitter1Google+0StumbleUpon0

I recently picked up a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran Hot Cereal. Our girls love hot cereal so I thought we’d give it a try. On the back was a recipe for oat bran muffins.  I love bran muffins, so I had to make the recipe. (I’ve yet to cook hot cereal with our bag of oat bran!)

I made quite a few adaptations to the recipe – it was far too healthy. ;) Our muffins came out light and fluffy, with just the right amount of sweetness.  I used a mini muffin tin and was popping muffins like candy. (Side note: Cate, my 5-year-old, gave me the muffin tin for Christmas and I LOVE it. What a smart little girl. Mini muffins are my new fave.)

    Geez…how much healthier were the original muffins? These look pretty healthy to me!

    Thanks for the recipe–all the muffin recipes I’ve ever used (or any quick breads) call for SO much sugar/oil that I might as well make a cake. I’ll try this one!

    Hmmm, I will have to try that one. Thanks for sharing.

    Here’s my current favorite bran muffin recipe – http://www.mealsmatter.org/recipes-meals/recipe/47696 – it has a choclate flavor to it. Yummy~!

    I have to admit, I am an absolute addict of these muffins! I use whole wheat pastry flour and perfectly happy with the results. I also like to add ~1/8 tsp of cardamom & nutmeg, gives them a nice “spice muffin” flavor. If I want them sweeter I throw 1/2cp. semi-sweet chocolate chips in, and if I’m feeling fruity I use a 1/2cp. of blueberries. Both are delicious but WARNING!!! If you use blueberries either refrigerate the muffins or eat them quickly, the muffins tend to be VERY moist and will spoil quicker than the base recipe.
