I like to optimize every carb or calorie I eat to be healthy as well as delicious. This recipe combines bran and yogurt to make a really scrumptious muffin! These can also be made with fruit yogurt by leaving out the cinnamon and nutmeg and adding 1/2 cup fresh berries.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin tins with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk the egg, oil, yogurt, and half-and-half together in a bowl until combined; stir the bran cereal and walnuts into the mixture. Mix the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar substitute, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a separate bowl; add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir just until moistened. It's okay to add a little more half-and-half if the batter is too stiff. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes. Remove immediately to rack to cool.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

The submitter indicated that if the batter was too thick, to add more half & half; I added 1/4 c. of applesauce. Also added 1/2 c. dried cranberries. The yogurt makes this muffin very light in texture compared to typically heavy bran muffins.

'Not too impressed with this one. I made changes, but not enough to affect the taste - soaked the cereal(didn't crush it), buttermilk for yogurt, added 1/4 c applesauce, 1/4c milk, reduced nutmeg, added some vanilla. These were very bland. K said they taste just like bread. 'Guess that's a good thing since she doesn't go for bran too much. Oh, used white sugar not substitute. Brown would've been better & definately more of it & more cinnamon. '
