You can up the health quota on these Wild Blueberry Walnut Bran Muffins with a few simple changes!


  • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour (can substitute with half whole wheat flour for slightly denser and healthier muffins)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 cups bran cereal (such as All- Bran)
  • 1 large egg or 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (such as Canola oil)
  • 3 cups Wild Blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar (optional)


  1. In large bowl, combine bran cereal and milk. Let stand about 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. Add egg and oil to softened cereal mixture and mix thoroughly. Add flour mixture, stirring only until just combined. Do not beat. Fold in walnuts. Gently fold in Wild Blueberries.
  4. Portion evenly in 12, 2 1/2-inch muffin tins coated with cooking spray. Can sprinkle each uncooked muffin with 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar, if desired.
  5. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 25-30 minutes. (If frozen berries are used, add 5-10 minutes to cooking time.)
