Conflicted Bran Muffins (fibre and chocolate)

My chocolate riff on the standard All Bran muffin. They run about 130 calories each—you could drop that by using butter instead of vegetable oil (it has 20% fewer calories, who knew?), skim milk (or water) for 1%, and by replacing two tablespoons of the flour with cocoa.

2 cups All Bran original
1 ½ cups 1% milk
1 beaten egg
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 cup flour
¼ cup cocoa powder
½ cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine the All Bran with the milk, egg and vegetable oil. In a 2 cup measuring cup, combine the flour, cocoa, and sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the All Bran mixture and stir until moistened—don’t overstir.

Drop batter into muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes.

Makes 12 small muffins
