All-Bran Muffins

These aren’t the prettiest muffins ever, but considering the amount of fiber they pack, they are surprisingly tasty.  I made these on Tuesday morning.  I’ve been hitting the gym with a friend or two around 5 am on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, so by the time I showered on Tuesday, I was starving and wanted to make a warm breakfast that I thought the kids and I would both enjoy.  A quick flip through the cookbook and I settled on these — they pulled together very quickly and by the time I’d dried my hair, found the kiddos clothes for the day, and allowed them to open their Advent calendars, we were ready for breakfast.

The kids enjoyed these with butter served with milk.  I enjoyed mine with a cup of steaming hot coffee to kick-start my day in the right direction.  Next time, I think I’ll consider subbing the white flour for wheat and try subbing the sugar for honey.  Subbing the oil for applesauce also seems like a no-brainer. I’ll update this post with the results.

These muffins received 3 1/2 wooden spoons from the trio and me!
