Man Muffins

Recently, I decided to recreate something I enjoyed as a young boy... I can still remember watching my father mix up this funky brown stuff in a gigantic green plastic bowl, that he later stuffed into some muffin pans. Hearty and healthy, bran muffins make for a great mid morning snack on the mountain or during a lull in the duck blind. Don't forget to pack a thermos of coffee either. The term "man muffins" does not exclude these from the likes of a woman or anyone for that matter. It's simply a term I coined to describe these dense, flavorful creations. So come one or come all, these things are pretty tasty. 

1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1 cup Organic Greek Yogurt Vanilla
1/3 cup Apple suace
1 egg
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Blueberries
Some walnuts

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

2.Mix together wheat bran and yogurt; let stand for 10 minutes.

3.Beat together applesauce, egg, sugar and vanilla and add to yogurt/bran mixture. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into yogurt mixture, until just blended. Fold in blueberries/walnuts and spoon batter into prepared muffin tins.

4.Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool and enjoy!
