Yield: 1 servings
|1 tablespoon||Baking powder|
|1¼ cup||Skim milk|
|2 tablespoons||Corn syrup|
Preheat oven to 425 F. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. The blueberries too, it keeps them from staining the ingredients. Mash the bananas in a separate bowl and mix the milk, egg whites, honey, and corn syrup together, then blend with the dry ingredients. Line muffin pans with paper baking cups, and fill with batter. Bake about 15 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
***HINTS*** I found that if you try to eat these straight from the oven they tend to stick to the paper. They keep great for a week though in the frig without sticking. If you eat 3 of these a day, it is suppose to be a sufficient amount of oatbran to significantly lower your cholesterol. So far, I haven't seen much of a difference in my own, but that is just me and I am still trying. Also, if you use a ¼ cup measure to scoop out the batter, it pretty much evenly distributes the batter amoung the 12 cups.
***Variations**** I have tried the following substitutions in many combinations and these are still good. raisens instead of blueberries or no fruit at all, ¼ c brown sugar instead of ¼ c honey, no bananas, one banana, 2 Tbsp of canola for 2 Tbsp of corn syrup although I wouldn't recommend this for obvious reasons. Also, you could try 2 cups of oatbran and ½ cup apple fiber. I have not tried this yet, but will the next time I make muffins. I FINALLY found apple fiber (no, not apple pectin) yesterday at a hfs thanks to my friend Jen who happens to be on this list!! Apple fiber is an even better fiber than oatbran, and therefore even better for lowering LDL and raising HDL!
I hope you enjoy these!
