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!

By Lauren Chattman for Healthy Starts Made Simple
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
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Kellogg’s® All-Bran® cereal
1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
¼ cup dark molasses
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 cup unsalted raw sunflower, pumpkin, or flax seeds
- Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or coat with nonstick cooking spray.
- 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.
- 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.
These look wonderful - one more bowl of oatmeal and i'm going to cry...will make a very nice change!
I hear you! I eat oatmeal every day too 🙂 Change is good sometimes!
