Bran Muffins

Mom used to make a batch each of blueberry and bran muffins. I loved the bran muffins smeared with margarine. That was back when I really disliked the taste of butter and you could find the simple bran muffin boxed mix. Here are some bran-ish muffins that go great with real butter (or Smart Baance.)

 Bran Muffins
 2 C bran cereal flakes, crushed
1 1/3 C milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 C vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/4 C flour
1/2 C brown sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon

 Heat oven to 400. Line muffin tin with paper liners. Stir cereal milk and vanilla in medium bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes until cereal us softened. Beat in oil and egg. In separate bowl mix remaining ingredients. Add flourmixture to cereal mixture just until moistened. Divide batter into liberal and bake for 15 minutes or until firm when tapped or toothpick comes out clean.
