Blueberry Bran Muffins

It's blueberry season! I am always looking for ways to sneak a little extra fiber into my children's diet. My kids do not like plain bran flakes, but they sure make for some good baking basics when it comes to making a kid friendly snack. And it is perfect time of year to gather some fresh blueberries for the mixing! If you were at market last weekend, this is what you found at our booth...feel free to share and enjoy!

Blueberry Bran Muffins

3/4 cup Bran Flakes, crushed
3 Tbsp packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp melted butter

1 3/4 cup bran flakes
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 Tbsp veg oil
3 cubes Mama Made Apple, thawed
1 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup fresh blueberries

Pre-heat oven to 400. Grease muffin tins. (I prefer stoneware pans for this recipe). Combine cereal, buttermilk, egg, oil, apple in bowl. Let sit for 5 min, cereal should get soggy. Combine rest of ingredients and stir in blueberries last using a folding motion. Batter will be thick! Divide evenly into muffin cups and sprinkle with crunchy topping. Bake for  20-25 min. As always, serve with a smile and enjoy! (Each muffin has 2g of fiber)
