1st Baking Experience

Low-fat Blueberry Bran Muffins! I survived my 1st baking experience - delicious! :)

I found this recipe but made a few substitutions - almond milk, all whole wheat flour and egg beaters.

1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 serving egg beaters
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup blueberries

  • Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or use paper muffin liners. Mix together wheat bran and milk, and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla. Beat in bran mixture. Sift together whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into bran mixture until just blended. Fold in blueberries. Scoop into muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly tapped.
