One Bowl Chocolate Fiber Muffins are dessert-like chocolate muffins with a bit of added fiber from bran cereal.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup fiber cereal, crushed after measuring (Fiber One or All Bran)
  • 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 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  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.
  3. Add the flour and stir just until mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and divide evenly among muffin cups.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes (I baked for 17).
  5. Let cool in muffin tin for about 2 minutes, then remove muffin cups from tin.
Notes
You can make these with Fiber One or All-Bran. If you don't have white whole wheat flour, you can make them with all-purpose or a mixture of all-purpose and whole wheat.
