Blueberry Bran Molasses Muffins

Add fiber to your diet with
 these healthy nutritious muffins 

This recipe makes 1 dozen large muffins

Preheat Oven to 400deg.F

Mix together  1 1/4 cups all-bran cereal, 
1/2 cup skim milk, 
1/2 cup orange juice
Stir together and let stand 3 minutes to soften.
In another bowl put 1 cup white flour, 
1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 
2 tsp baking powder,  
1/4 tsp baking soda,  
1/4 tsp salt.
Whisk all the above together...
Fold in 1 cup of blueberries and set aside.
I use frozen wild blueberries.
In smaller bowl or large measuring cup,
 mix together  2 eggs
3 tbsp vegetable oil,
 1/2 cup molasses
Add this mixture to the softened all-bran mixture,
then add all to the flour mixture.

Fill muffin tins
Bake 400deg. for 20-25 mins.

Another batch in larger papers.


tip: (from my favourite old cookbook. Five Roses Flour)
The secret of good muffins is to stir the batter until the flour is just dampened.
The batter should be lumpy. Over mixing causes tunnels and a tough texture.
Perfect muffins are light and tender with rough shiny golden crusts.
