Kim’s Best Bran Muffins

1¼ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

2 cups dry All-Bran® cereal (original type)

1¼ cups 1% low fat milk

1 large egg

¼ cup vegetable or canola oil

3 tablespoons unsweetened natural applesauce

 

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray each cup in a standard 12-cup muffin/cupcake pan with vegetable cooking spray. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine cereal and milk; let stand about 2 minutes or until cereal softens. Add egg, oil and applesauce and stir well. Add flour mixture, stirring only until all ingredients are combined. Divide batter between cups. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick comes out with only a couple crumbs. Serve warm. Makes 12 muffins.
