With the onset of autumn rolling in, I always look for certain warm comfort food to start my day. One thing I love to eat, that sustains me until lunchtime is a warm, delicious Bran Muffin. They are not only healthy but fill you up and keep you from snacking too much during the day. This recipe combines the delicious ingredient of blueberries, mixed with good-for-you fiber of oats, and bran.   It is a sure way to start your day right, and with a satisfied smile.

Blueberry-Oat Bran Muffins

WHAT YOU NEED:

– 1 cup organic oat bran
– 1 cup flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– a healthy pinch salt
– 1/2 cup unrefined cane sugar
– 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
– 1 cup plain yogurt
– 2 tablespoons extra-virgin sunflower oil
– 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
– 2 eggs

Makes about 12 muffins.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Preheat the oven to 360°F

line a 12-muffin tray* with paper liners.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the bran, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar, until no lump remains.

Add the blueberries and toss gently to combine.

In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, oil, and eggs.

Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients, and fold it in gently with a spatula until no trace of flour remains.

The mixture will be lumpy, but resist over-mixing.

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tray, filling each muffin mold by about three quarters.

Bake for 12 to 16 minutes, until set and golden. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.

* I prefer warm with a glass organic OJ. YUM!

Enjoy!
