Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

High Fiber Seeded Bran Muffins

Hello dear reader! Today’s post is sponsored by Kellogg’s. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Seeded Bran Muffins made with Kellogg’s All Bran cereal. They’re delicious and convenient for a quick and high fiber breakfast on the run.  They’re also great with a piece of fruit for an afternoon snack.  Did you know you should eat at least 25 grams of fiber each day?  One of these muffins has about 5 grams of fiber (and 6 grams of protein).  Try throwing in a handful of raisins or dried cranberries for even more fiber!

Besides being a delicious way to begin your day, these bran and yogurt breakfast muffins can help regulate your digestion. They are perfect for a grab-and-go workday breakfast or for a weekend spent at home with your family. (Bonus: They’re grandchild-approved!)

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients
3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup Kellogg’s® All-Bran® cereal

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

5 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 cup dark molasses

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup low-fat plain yogurt

1 cup unsalted raw sunflower, pumpkin, or flax seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cereal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar. Add oil, molasses, eggs, vanilla and yogurt; stir with a wooden spoon until all ingredients are moistened. Stir in seeds.
  3. Divide batter among muffin cups and bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let muffins cool in pan for five minutes, invert onto a wire rack, and then turn right side up to cool completely. Delectable bran muffins will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days.
