Healthy Brownie Muffins

It's always good to have some kind of breakfast ready to grab when you're in a hurry. And let's face it, we all have those mornings when our alarms don't go off and we don't have time to grab a bowl of cereal because you have to speed downtown to the office. We also all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day—it is what gets us going in the morning. So, it's a mystery why so many people skip breakfast every morning. Here is a quick and easy recipe for healthy, yet tasty, muffins that you can keep on hand to grab on those mornings when your alarm doesn't go off, and even on those mornings when your alarm does go off and you just want a tasty breakfast!

Here are the ingredients you will need for your healthy brownie muffins:

  • 3 cups of All-Bran cereal
  • 1-1/2 cup of warm water
  • Low fat brownie mix
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup of water

Begin making the brownie muffins by soaking the All-Bran cereal in the 1 1/2 cups of warm water. You want the bran to sit in the water and absorb the water; this will take a few minutes. While you are waiting for the bran to absorb the warm, take the low fat brownie mix and mix it with the baking powder and the mini chocolate chips. Make sure to mix it well and that all the dry ingredients are mixed well and completely. Now you just have to add the 2/3 cup of water. Again, make sure that you mix it well and that the water moistens all the dry ingredients.

Add the brownie to the All-Bran cereal; by this time the bran should have fully absorbed the water. Stir the bran mixture in the brownie mixture well, making sure that everything is fully combined. You can use a hand mixer if you want to make sure that everything combines adequately.

Spoon the muffins into a mini muffin pan: mini muffin pans work best because they make muffins that are small enough for an adequate serving, but not so big that you eat more than you should or you throw away what you don't eat. Bake the muffins in a preheated 350-degree oven for eighteen to twenty minutes. This particular recipe makes eighteen to twenty-four muffins, which is perfect for a few weeks' supply.

Once the muffins are out of oven, feel free to eat a couple, and then freeze what you don't eat right away. That way, you can have fresh, healthy, brownie muffins by just reaching into the freezer on your way out the door. These muffins are perfect for an on-the-go, healthy lifestyle. Enjoy!
