|Basic Oat Bran Muffins ~ Recipe from the book ~ The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure|
I've been looking for ways to increase the oat bran that I eat. I've been making a lot of hot oat bran cereal, but, I wanted more ways beyond that old breakfast standby. I recently came across this recipe for a Basic Oat Bran Muffin and decided to give it a try. I must say, it's a bit on the dry side, but, then again, most 'healthy' oat bran muffins are. I also must confess, that by the time I finished them all, I had become a convert. They really do become addictive after you've eaten them for a few days and I began to look forward to having them with breakfast or as a snack. The actual book ~ The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure ~ by Robert E. Kowalski, has many more spins on this Basic (oat bran) Muffin recipe. I'll be trying out those other muffin flavors and will be tinkering with them in the months ahead.
|Try eating your Oat Bran Muffin with a little skim milk poured on top for a delicious spin.|
The oat bran muffin is only slightly sweet, so it can go either way it terms of what you serve it with. It's just as at home being served with dinner as it is with being eaten at breakfast. When I finally got to the last few, they were a bit too dry for my liking. I decided to try eating them just like my Great Grandmother Ninny would have done. She came from the hills of West Virginia, and from a time when you never let any food go to waste. So, if you had stale cornbread, you ate it in a bowl with a little milk poured on top. I'm a firm believer in ~ Waste Not, Want Not ~ too. So, eating them this way appealed to me. Happy to report that it works like a charm for these oat bran muffins, too. I actually think I prefer them this way and they fit perfectly in my little Pyrex custard cups. A match made in heaven!
So, if you're looking for another way to eat your oat bran, give these healthy muffins a try. Check out the online recipe ~ here. Enjoy!
