Blueberry Bran Muffins

These muffins smell great baking and it is so easy to throw the ingredients together and have them made in under thirty minutes.  Today I made them for the boys to have after school.  They love them and didn't even seem to care that they are "healthy".

This time I made them with blueberries.  The blueberries could be replaced with other fruits, such as raspberries, raisins or bananas.  The original recipe did call for milk, which I replaced with Silk Vanilla Soy Milk.

The recipe made twelve muffins.  Just enough for snacks and breakfast for a few days.  Enjoy!

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup oat bran
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup soy milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Line 12 muffin cups with paper baking cups.
In large bowl, combine flour, bran, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine applesauce, soy milk, oil and egg; blend well.  Add to dry ingredients.  Do not over mix.
Fill muffin cups.  Bake 18 to 20 minutes.  Cool in pan for about 5 minutes; remove from pan.
They are especially good eaten while still warm.

Add 1/2 cup frozen blueberries or raisins or another fruit.
