I found this recipe on the Weight Watchers Canada forum. It's a high fibre, chocolately muffin that tastes rich and not at all low-fat. For Weight Watchers, each muffin is 2 points.
- 3 cups all-bran cereal
- 2 1⁄3 cups water
- 1 (20 ounce) package low-fat brownie mix
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- Soak all bran in water for a couple of minutes.
- Add baking powder to cereal and stir.
- Add brownie mix and stir to combine.
- Spoon mix into medium sized muffin tins lined with muffin liners or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Eacg muffin cup should be 3/4 full.
- Bake in oven @ 350 for about 20-25 minutes.
This is a fantastic recipe. I did, however, run the recipe through the Weight watcher online recipe builder and know that if you make this recipe into 18 NOT 12 muffins they are 2 points per muffin. Made into 12 muffins (the tins would have overflowed if I tried) each muffin would be 3 points. I was looking for a healthy alternative to get my chocolate fix as a Weight watcher member. I had tried a chocolate cake/pumpkin recipe but was very disappointed in the results. Although this is a "sturdier" muffin than a plain chocolate cake muffin, it is not "fiber" tasting at all. I bake and then freeze a batch and carry them in my lunch almost every day and never tire of them.
The recipe should say 2teaspoons of BAKING POWDER instead of Tablespoons!!! Mine turned out pretty good, I added a few semi-sweet chocolate chips also. I will make these again for sure, but if you are expecting the same taste and texture as regular brownies you will be disappointed. Perfect for those watching their weight though! I froze most of them to eat one at a time also.
We love this recipe, can't remember where I got it originally but my "source" says they're 2.5 points each. Anyway, they're great, very soft and moist!
