Whole wheat flour and high-fiber cereal are the goodies tucked in a chocolate-lover's sweet muffin. From the fiberOne.com Web Site.
- 1 cup Fiber One cereal
- 1 1⁄3 cups buttermilk
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1 egg
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 375°F Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
- In medium bowl, mix cereal and buttermilk; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in oil and egg. Stir in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
- Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately remove from pan. Serve warm.
I had really high hopes for the recipe from the other reviews. I was kind of disappointed. I was hoping for something that tastes like a VitaTop Muffin. This doesn't. This was tasty, but it does taste healthy. It has a great texture for being healthy, though. It feels like you're eating a not-too-sweet, slighlty gritty chocolate cup cake. I would make this again.
These are really good! They tasted great warm out of the oven - nice chocolate flavor, good texture and healthy too. What's not to love? Thanks for posting!
Oh my, are these good!! I subbed milk + lemon juice for the buttermilk and crushed All-Bran (instead of the Fiber One) in my Magic Bullet. We've tried a few double chocolate muffin recipes (both "healthy" and non) and all (DH and 3 DDs aged 9, 5, & 2) agreed these are the best! Thanks!! UPDATE: Instead of crushing the All-Bran, I left it to soak in the milk/lemon juice mixture for 10 minutes or so. Also tried pouring the mix into a loaf pan and baked at the same temp for about 45 minutes. Made a superb loaf which folks think is "cake" (heeheehee!). Will be using this recipe a lot, I can see, since they don't last long in my house...
