Low-Fat, Low-Calorie, High-Fiber, High-Protein Blueberry Bran Muffins

Introduction

With a recipe title like that, who could resist?! ;-) (((A shout-out to user 'Hilary Lyons' at Allrecipes.com - I used her "Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins" recipe as a base for mine, and I want to give credit where credit is due!)))

Ingredients

    * 1 1/2 cups Natural Wheat bran, crude
    * 1 cup Milk, 1%
    * 1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
    * 1 Egg, large
    * 1/2 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
    * 1/3 cup Fancy Molasses
    * 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
    * 1/2 cup Flour, white (all-purpose)
    * 3/4 cup Flour, whole wheat
    * 3/4 cup (100g) 35% Whey Protein Concentrate powder, plain / natural / unflavoured (sometimes known as "WPC 35")
    * 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
    * 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
    * 1/2 tsp. Salt
    * 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
    * 4 tbsp. Wheat Germ, untoasted
    * 2 cups Blueberries, unsweetened, frozen

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or use paper muffin liners.
2. In a small bowl, mix together wheat bran and milk, and let stand for 10 minutes.
3. In another small bowl, mix together the frozen blueberries and wheat germ, tossing to coat the berries.
4. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, egg, brown sugar, molasses, and vanilla. Beat in bran mixture.
5. Sift together flours, whey protein, baking soda and powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir into bran mixture until just blended.
6. Fold in wheat germ-covered berries, and scoop into muffin cups. Makes 9 large 'jumbo' muffins, or 18 smaller 'regular' sized muffins. [Can also make 4 'jumbo' and 10 'regular' or some other combination, depending on your pans!] (Use about 1/2 cup batter for large 'jumbo' muffins, or about 1/4 cup batter for smaller 'regular' sized muffins.)
7. Bake in preheated oven for 20 (regular sized muffins) to 25 (jumbo sized muffins) minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly tapped. Remove from oven, and cool on wire racks.
8. Makes 9 large 'jumbo' muffins [2 'servings' each], or 18 smaller 'regular' muffins [1 'serving' each]. Enjoy! :)
***NOTE: Due to the natural bran oils and lack of preservatives, these muffins can go bad (rancid) quickly. Store in the frige or freezer, or eat within a day or two for best results.

    Pretty good - I didn't have brown sugar, so I used white only, and didn't add molasses. I also added ISO Whey protein mix ( about 1/2 cup ) instead of the 35% whey protein powder. and only used wheat flour, not white flour. - 5/12/08
