In Pembina, North Dakota, Alyce Wyman bakes up these moist muffins with a sweet nut topping. “The original recipe called for bran cereal with raisins,” she says. “But I was out of that cereal one day, so I used plain bran flakes and added blueberries instead of raisins. Now I always make it this way.”

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 218 calories, 8 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 38 mg cholesterol, 249 mg sodium, 37 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine bran flakes and buttermilk; set aside.
  2. In another large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas and vanilla (mixture will appear curdled).
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; gradually stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Stir in bran mixture. Fold in blueberries. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.
  4. Combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2014

This recipe is AMAZING! I've made this several times, in so many ways. Sometimes I omit the berries, cut the sugar in half, and I ALWAYS add some grated zucchini. I've also made these by omitting the bananas and berries and made them with butternut squash, grated carrots, and pumpkin pie spice. YUMMY! I will be keeping this recipe for a LONG LONG TIME!

These were very very good. I used raisins in place of the blueberries because the person I was making them for likes raisins, I used All Bran cereal because that's all we had and I didn't use the topping but when I make them myself for myself, I will use blueberries and the topping. Very very good. Thank you!

I would have to rate it as 5 stars. It is not only delicious but with the bran & blueberries it is highly nutritious. I took it to a prayer meeting and everyone wanted the recipe.
