Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup bran
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup yogurt, plain, nonfat
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup egg substitute, low-cholesterol
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) California walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Spray standard muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl place the bran, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Stir and toss the ingredients with a fork to combine thoroughly.
  5. In another bowl beat together the yogurt, brown sugar, egg substitute, applesauce, molasses and walnuts.
  6. Add to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork just until the batter is blended, about 20 seconds.
  7. Quickly stir in the blueberries.
  8. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling each cup about three-quarters full.
  9. Bake about 15 minutes, until the tops are golden and the muffins spring back when touched gently.
  10. Cool about 5 minutes in the pan, then remove.
