One Bowl Chocolate Fiber Muffins are dessert-like chocolate muffins with a bit of added fiber from bran cereal.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Fiber One Cereal, crushed after measuring
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk or 1 1/4 cup regular milk plus 4 teaspoons or vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa (natural type, not Dutch or European style)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (such as Ultragrainor King Arthur) – 4.5 oz
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 10 muffin tins with paper liners (or line 12 for smaller muffins).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the crushed cereal and buttermilk. Let stand for 5 minutes to soften cereal. Add oil, egg, brown sugar and vanilla and stir until very well mixed. Stir in cocoa, baking soda and salt and (again) mix well. Finally, add the flour and stir just until mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and divide evenly among the 10 muffin cups; bake for 15-20 minutes (I baked for 17).
  3. Let cool and remove from cups.
  4. Makes 10
