Low-Fat High Fiber Blueberry Bran Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lighthouse Rita

These muffins are a great low-fat moist muffin. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of the 2/3 cup called for and I felt they were sweet enough. I also added chopped apples.

I don't believe in giving bad reviews if you change the recipe AT ALL. I hate when people say something bad after they completely alter a recipe. In this case, I actually did make a very very small modification, but since I'm giving it five stars, I see no harm in reviewing the basic premise of this recipe. The only real change I made was to add 1 Tbsp. of oil in place of 1 Tbsp. of applesauce to give it a little more of a traditional muffin feel. Sometimes when I use all applesauce, I don't love the texture in the end, so out of fear, I added a touch of oil. I also added about a 1/2 - 1 tsp. of cinnamon because I love cinnamon in everything. These are so yummy. I love blueberry and bran together.... really good with some apple jelly on them. Sounds wierd, but it's delicious! These were great, thanks for the recipe!!
