Ingredients:

  • 3 cups (750ml) SmartBran Cereal
  • 2 ½ cups (725ml) sifted whole wheat flour
  • 4 tsp (20ml) baking powder
  • ½ cup (125ml) + 2 tbsp (30ml) vegan butter or butter (melted).
  • ½ cup (125ml) organic cane sugar
  • ⅔ cup (180ml) maple syrup
  • 1 ¾ cup (425ml) soymilk or milk
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla
  • 1 cup (250ml) fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C. Prepare 2 standard 12-cup muffins tins with large paper baking cups.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together butter, sugar, maple syrup, milk, flax, and vanilla. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor, grind SmartBran cereal into a fine flour. In a medium bowl, combine ground cereal, flour, and baking powder, mix well. Add blueberries and stir to coat.
  4. Use a fork to stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Do not overmix.
  5. Divide batter between 20 muffins cups. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the tops are golden-brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Once cooked, pop muffins out at an angel and cool in their tin.
