These cranberry oat bran muffins will fill you up with plenty of fiber!
Bran muffins are supposed to be good for you. But truth be told, many are not. They are filled with sugar and other not-so-good-for-you ingredients. So I just had to try my own version.
I used one of my regular muffin recipes and converted it to the muffin you see above. It was tasty and I had a hard time keeping Mini Chef from eating the whole batch. How’s that for making sure a kid gets his fiber?
These freeze really well too. You can freeze them for up to 4 months in a food-safe, air-tight container. They will last in the fridge for up to a week or two. These are not meant for the pantry or countertop because there are no preservatives!
They make a great take-along snack, they go well with coffee for breakfast in the morning, or on occasion, even make a great dessert!
