  • ¾ cup oat bran
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • cup multigrain flour whole wheat can be substituted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries


  • Preheat oven to 375º. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
  • Combine together oat bran, all purpose flour,multigrain flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. I use a whisk to blend the dry ingredients together.
  • Using a mixer beat together sugar, butter, molasses, egg and vanilla until well blended.
  • Add dry ingredients alternating with yogurt. To this by hand-mixing with a wooden spoon, not the electric mixer. Don't over-mix. The batter should remain lumpy or muffins will be tough and dry.
  • Fold in the blueberries.
  • Divide the batter equally into muffin cups. Bake at 375º for 15-18 minutes until tops are firm to the touch.
