Yogurt Bran Muffins (From Fiber One)
I got this recipe off the side of a Fiber One box... and it's a goodie. You can use pretty much any kind of bran cereal in it, and the addition of different types of yogurt adds subtle shadings of different flavours. I try to match the yogurt to whatever type of additional stuff that I add - 1/2 cup chopped fruit, berries, raisins, nuts, etc. (optional).
- Ready In:
- 1 cup all-bran cereal (crushed)
- 2 egg whites
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 12 ounces nonfat yogurt (2 6 oz containers)
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄3 cup Splenda granular
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Heat oven to 400°F.
- Grease bottoms of 12 muffin molds, or use baking cups.
- Crush cereal.
- Stir together egg whites, oil, and yogurt.
- Stir in cereal and dry ingredients (except optional additions), just until moistened.
- Fold in optional additions.
- Spoon batter evenly into tins.
- Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

Followed the recipe as directed except used a little more yogurt. When I added the dry ingredients to the wet it was way too dry - basically the consistency of thick cookie dough - and I added more yogurt. The current recipe on the box calls for more liquid. I had to add over a half a cup of milk to give turn this into a thick batter. The taste was just ok, a waste of time and ingredients in my opinion. While I'm a big fan of Fiber One and eat it regularly, I think I like it better as a cereal. Maybe a different fiber cereal and applesauce would yield different results but think I'll stick to a traditional muffin recipe. We only eat sweets occasionally and this was not much of a 'treat'.Reply
I'm not always inspired to write reviews, but these were really great! Super quick to prepare and they came out of the oven just perfect! They had great rise, they were moist, and they were delicious! Like some others, I used 1 egg (instead of 2 eggs whites) and used applesauce (in place of oil). I will definitely make these again very soon!2Reply

I made a few changes. I subbed applesauce for the oil, as I do with most of my baking. I used real sugar instead of Splenda. I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. I added a couple tablespoons strawberry preserves, a lot of raisins, and some walnuts, for flavor. The muffins were very moist and had a great texture. They are not sweet at all, but I don't care for muffins that are more like cupcakes. I think next time I would use blueberries instead of raisins, but I did quite like these. So did my toddlers.1Replies 1
