Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup blueberries (coated in 1 T. flour)

1. Preheat oven to 375C. Grease a muffin tin or use liners. Mix the bran & milk together and let sit while you combine the other ingredients.
2. In a large bowl, mix the applesauce, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla. Beat in the bran mixture. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir into bran mixture until just blended. Fold in the flour-coated blueberries.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 mins [mine took 20] or until tops spring back when lightly touched.

These are a delicious and healthy snack or breakfast on the go! :) ~100 calories/muffin.
