My kids love these muffins! I love that they are healthy for you but fun too. I have always made these in mini muffins tins so I am not sure how they would work in regular muffin tins.
- 1⁄3 cup skim milk
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 3⁄4 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄3 cup baking cocoa
- 2 1⁄4 cups bran flakes
- 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
- 4 (1 g) packets sugar substitute
- Blend all ingredients together just until mixed.
- Divide evenly between 24 mini muffin tins.
- Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Nice! They do taste healthy, but good! I left out the artificial sweetener and added another tablespoon or so of sugar. I'm looking forward to enjoying them with coffee in the am. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I am so glad I found this recipe. I adjusted it a bit so I could use regular bran that you buy in bulk instead of the cereal- cheaper and healthier. I used 1/2 c milk and 2 c regular bran. I'm not an artificial sweetener user, so I just used 1/2 c sugar, plus I used 1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips (you couldn't even taste the 2T of mini ones) and white whole wheat flour. I also did regular-sized muffins, baking for the same time.<br/>Great recipe. I love the pumpkin for some added nutrients. Tastes like dessert!
Excellent! My kids loved them. They called them chocolate cupcakes!
