Fruited Bran Muffins Recipe

Juicy blueberries and apples make a nice addition to these moist, hearty muffins. Bran cereal helps pump up fiber to 5 g. Betsy King - Duluth, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups All-Bran
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped peeled tart apple
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, combine the egg, buttermilk, banana, molasses and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apple and blueberries.
  • 2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray or use paper liners; fill three-fourths full with batter. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 9 muffins.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"I made theses a few weeks ago for a meeting at work and everyone loved them! I used whole wheat pastry flour to help them rise a little better and fiber one cereal instead of all bran. They turned out great! I will definitely will be making these again!"

"Although these were fairly tasty, the muffins didn't rise much, if at all. Maybe the lack of salt is to blame? I did like the combo of apples, bananas and blueberries."
