High Fiber Blueberry Muffins with Bran and Germ

Submitted by: MICHELLE_391

Introduction

I am trying to perfect this recipe - I'd like the "perfect" healthy, high-fiber muffin. After about a month of trying, this is what I've come up with. However, they are still a bit dry. They have the consistency of cornbread, which I kind of like for breakfast. But for those who like a moister muffin, I'm not sure if they need more apple sauce or if I need to add some fat. I'm also toying with the idea of trying Splenda's brown sugar version to lower the overall sugar content of these.

If anyone tries any of these ideas or comes up with one of their own, I'd really love to hear about it!
