Does the mention of fiber scare you? When someone offers you a fiber snack do you turn it down because you think it will taste like cardboard? Ever been afraid of getting a splinter from eating a fiber muffin? OK, then today’s recipe is definitely for you because these Fiberlicious Muffins are going to change the way you think about fiber!
I discovered this recipe for fiber muffins many years ago, in the days before you could easily find tasty Fiber One or Weight Watchers snacks at your local grocery store. I was searching for a fiber packed recipe to help me feel full longer since I was trying to lose weight. Since I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten my body weight in sweet snacks recently, like the Malted Milk Brownies I shared with you last week, I decided it was time to make these Fiberlicious Muffins and get back into a healthier cooking mode. Even though this recipe is a pretty healthy one since it’s packed with good-for-you-fiber, I’m not calling it a healthy or diet recipe. Once you see the ingredient list you’ll know why….
- 3 cups All Bran Buds Cereal
- 1 Box Betty Crocker Low Fat Brownie Mix
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
That’s right! A brownie mix is the secret ingredient to adding the wonderful chocolate flavor to these muffins. If you can’t find Betty Crocker Low Fat Brownie Mix in your local grocery store, no worries. Just substitute a regular box mix instead.
- Line muffin pan with liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Mix water, All Bran Buds cereal and baking powder together in a bowl and let set for 5 minutes.
- Add brownie mix and mix well. Batter will be lumpy.
- Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Seriously, isn’t that an amazingly simple recipe??? Yes, but the taste is even better!!! These keep well when stored in an air-tight container. Oh, did I tell you that even my hubby likes these muffins? When I made them to take on a camping trip with us when we were first married I think he was a little skeptical, but he was pleasantly surprised come breakfast time. Print out the recipe below and give it a try. I promise it will change your relationship with fiber for good.
