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.
