  • 2 cups All-Bran Cereal
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk or nonfat milk
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar see note
  • 1 egg or 2 egg whites
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin tin with liners and spray with nonstick cooking spray. (You must grease the liners or they will stick to the muffins.)
  • Place cereal and milk in a large bowl and allow to soak while you mix the other ingredients.
  • Whisk flours, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Place egg, applesauce, and oil in the bowl with the cereal and mix. Stir in dry ingredients. Scoop into muffin liners, filling 3/4 of the way full.
  • Bake for 14-18 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool before eating. Best eaten within two days or you can freeze them for up to one month. To reheat, microwave for 30-45 seconds.


Sugar: You can reduce to 2 tablespoons if you want less sugar.
