Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon - Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon - Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon - Nutmeg

Notes
  • Overcooking the muffins will make them dry, making it difficult to fool your family and friends into thinking that they are not oat bran
  • Serve with "Weight Watchers" cream cheese substitute, low fat margarine, jam or honey, and fresh fruit salad
  • For less crunch, delete the cracked wheat cereal and use all oat bran
  • Substitutions for the fruit/vegetables include: grated apples, fresh blueberries, raisins (pre-soak in hot water to plump them up; using' dry raisins will make the muffins very dry), grated zucchini, etc.   
  • Makes about 16 muffins
