Ella Lue's Chocolate Bran Muffins

These muffins are almost more of a prescription than a muffin. If you have a child (or you) that needs more fiber in your diet, these muffins are your answer.  They'll think they are just eating a treat.  They are moist and chocolatey and yummy.  RX:  Eat one a day!  Thanks to my friend Ella Lue for the great recipe!

Chocolate Bran Muffins
3 cups All- Bran or other high fiber cereal
2 1/2 cups very hot water
1-19 0z. box reduced fat brownie mix
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 package chocolate chips (optional)

Put the bran cereal in a large bowl and pour hot water over the top.  Let sit for about 15 minutes and then stir into a mush.  Add the brownie mix and baking powder.  Stir well.  Stir in the chocolate chips and put in paper-lined muffin tins.  Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350.
