Lucky me, got sent some ALL-BRAN cereal samples from Kellogg's courtesy of Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program.
I was sent All-Bran® Original, All-Bran® Bran Buds® and Complete® Wheat Bran Flakes. Kellogg's also sent a few recipe cards for me to try and a letter informing me that they do have a website with more recipes....yeah 400 of them. Is it really possible to have that many recipes to incorporate fiber into our diets? YUP!
I found at least 7 new recipes and printed them out since I have a plethora of bran cereal to use now! I found a Honey Muffin recipe but in true Lipsmack fashion....I had to tweak it.
Apple Honey Muffins
adapted from all-bran.com
Servings: 9 regular muffins, 6 texas size muffins
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup All-Bran® Original
1/3 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup dried apples, chopped (the ones from Wal-mart are super soft)
For Sprinkling on top: extra All-Bran® Original and 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
1. Preheat oven @ 400°F
2.Stir together flour, baking powder, soda, salt and chopped apples. Set aside.
3. In medium mixing bowl, combine Kellogg's® All-Bran® cereal and buttermilk. Let stand about 2 minutes or until cereal softens. Add egg, honey and butter. Beat well. Add flour mixture, stirring only until combined. Portion evenly into 6 texas sized muffin cup that have been sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with muffin papers. Original recipe says it makes 9 regular.
4. Sprinkle with some more All-Bran® Original and some light brown sugar on top.
5. Bake at 400°F about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
Variation: To make sour milk, stir 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice into 1 cup milk.
To substitute milk for buttermilk or sour milk, omit buttermilk or sour milk and use 2/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup honey, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and omit baking soda.
- These were yummy! I am now thinking about making a berry one now. Will it have a filling? Hmmmm.
Thank you Foodbuzz and Kellogg's....these were great to have and play around with! Love it!
Don't be hatin' on Bran anymore!
