Blueberry Bran Muffins Recipe

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and place rack in the center of the oven. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners or else spray with a nonstick vegetable spray. 

In a large bowl, stir together the flours, wheat bran, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon.

In another bowl whisk together the lightly beaten egg white, molasses, vanilla extract, oil, and buttermilk.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir just until moistened. Gently stir in the berries, making sure not to crush them.

Fill the muffin cups, using two spoons or an ice cream scoop, about 3/4 full. If you like sprinkle the tops of the muffins with rolled oats. Bake about 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.

Makes about 12 - 14 standard-sized muffins.
