  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  • 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.
  • Add the flour and stir just until mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and divide evenly among muffin cups.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes (I baked for 17).
  • Let cool in muffin tin for about 2 minutes, then remove muffin cups from tin.


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.
