Default Need advice re Bran Muffins recipe

Here's the recipe. I can't find the 100% Bran or Bran Buds cereal in
the local grocery stores. What can I substitute? I do have a food
co-op available that has, I believe, whole bran available -- IIRC, it
was a light and flaky thang.

I await your counsel, O Great Muffin Weenies

I have a *very* similar recipe that uses whole wheat flour for much of
the bran; therefore it won't make much difference what kind of bran you
use. Just use bran flakes. Lessee if I have the file here at work...


Refrigerator Muffins

5C whole wheat flour
1 1/2C bran
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
2C brown sugar (I like dark brown)
4 eggs, beaten
1C oil
1 quart buttermilk

Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Add eggs, oil, and buttermilk
and mix until blended. May be stored in covered container in
refrigerator for as long as 4 weeks. Bake as needed in lightly greased
muffin cups filled two-thirds full. Bake in 400 degree oven for 20
minutes. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.

Best regards,
Bob

Want me to send some up? I've got to get this frigging salsa in the mail
to you and Jack anyway. We get All-Bran for sure. I'm not positive
about
the Bran-Buds though. I would think any of the high fibre type of
cereals
would work.

Michael


Nah, I've got the All-Bran. It's the 100% Bran or Bran Buds that may
have been discontinued. Thanks anyway.

Bran Buds sounds like Grape Nuts, perhaps you could give them a ride
in the blender.

Bran cereal like "Bran Buds" or "100% Bran" or "All-Bran" consist of
whole wheat bran and sugar (and some malt, corn syrup sweetener, salt
and "enriched" with vitamins and minerals).

Grape Nuts, on the other hand, are quite hard and crunchy. They are
made from wheat flour (rather than wheat bran) and sweeteners and are
manufactured by baking, made into crumbs and finally toasted until
hard. Grape Nuts are much lower in fiber than the bran cereals.

Generally, ready-to-eat commercial bran cereals are used in making
bran muffins because they are widely available and easy to moisten and
fold into the muffin batter. But their function is to add wheat bran
fiber and they provide a little sweetener as a bonus.

You should be able to substitue wheat bran (usually available where
health foods are sold, or sold as a cooked cereal to be prepared like
oatmeal, or sometimes with baking supplies.) Just soak the wheat
bran in place of the Bran Buds cereal and increase the amount of
sugar in the recipe.

Cheers,
The Old Bear

Here's one example of the use of Fiber One, Barb:

HIGH FIBER COOKIES Categories : Diabetic Desserts Cookies

1 c Oat bran

1 c Rolled oats

1 c Fiber One cereal

1 c Kellogg's bran flakes

1 c Seedless raisins

1 c Chopped English walnuts

3/4 c Sugar

3/4 c Brown sugar

1 c Margarine (2 sticks)

2 Large egg whites

2 ts Vanilla

2 c All purpose flour

1 t Baking powder 1 t Baking soda

1/2 ts Salt

1/2 c Water at room temp



Place oat bran, rolled oats, Fiber one, bran flakes, raisins and walnuts in
a bowl. Mix lightly and set aside.


Place sugars and margarine in mixing bowl and mix at medium speed until
light and fluffy. Add egg whites and vanilla and mix lightly scraping the
bowl before and after adding the egg whites. In a separate bowl combine
flour, baking powder, soda and salt and mix at low speed about 1/2 min to
blend well. Add flour mixture and water to sugar mixture and mix at medium
speed only until flour is moistened. Add bran mixture and mix at medium
speed until well blended.

Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet that has been sprayed
with cooking spray or lined with aluminum foil. Bake at 375 for 12-14
minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let sit for 1 minute.
Remove cookies to wire rack and cool to room temperature.
