Blueberry Bran Muffin Recipe


Bran is a grain that is incredibly high in fiber and relatively low in calories.  It is perfect for adults, but great for kids as well because it has a lot of other good nutrients in it that little growing bodies need.  We like to add blueberries into these bran muffins to sweeten them up, and also add some fruit in our muffins.   These Blueberry Bran Muffin Recipe are a great muffin to have in your recipe box to pull out and make whenever you want a batch of delicious and really healthy muffins.

Muffins are one of our go-to breakfasts.  They are nutrient dense, easy to eat and kids love them!  We are always looking for new muffins recipes, and experimenting with different ingredients and fruits to include.   When you mix things up, even though we serve muffins often, our kids don’t get sick of them!

There is just something so delicious about a warm muffin out of the oven.  Add a little butter and let it melt into the center of the muffin and it seems like for a moment, nothing can go wrong for the rest of the day.

We love using bran in our muffins because it is so hearty, but tastes slightly sweet and gives muffins a great texture.  But what is bran??

  • Bran is the hard outer shell of the wheat plant. As the insoluble wheat bran passes through your system, it aids digestion, adds bulk to stools and prevents constipation.
  • Bran is a good source of the B vitamins.
  • Bran is a rich source of eight important minerals.

If you leave these muffins sitting out on the counter, you can bet on little hands sneaking a bite!  These muffins will freeze great and then you can have them anytime.  Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds per muffin and they taste just like they came out of the oven!

I was just scrolling down your blog and Kaitlyn saw the blueberry muffins and said, Let’s make that! Looks like we’ll be making these today! 🙂

What a delicious recipe! I look forward to sharing this with our fans. Thanks so much, Amy.

My 13 month old daughter loves these!!! She tends to like lots of carbs so I try to get fruits and veggies in other ways.

I used vanilla whole milk yogurt and 1/3 C defrosted frozen blueberries and they are really good!! Very sweet but it’s the natural sugar in the organic yogurt!!

I only had vanilla yogurt so I reduced the sugar to 2 tablespoons. I also put in 1/2 C blueberries because I love them! The muffins were tasty.

I just discovered your blog and love your recipes. Do you use bran flakes or do you crush them? Thanks!

Hi is there a way to replace the bran with another common house hold item but still a healthy one? I’m allergic to bran cereal.

I enjoyed the taste, it was really good. However, mine does not look like the picture as you can see. I think it has to do with the part where they said mkx all dry ingredients, then said let the bran cereal soak in the wet ingredients. The bran cereal is dry to i mixed it with the other dry ingredients before reading the next step. .

I LOVE these muffins. I made them yesterday and reduced the sugar to 2 tbsps (as a reader suggested) and added 1/2 cup frozen blueberries. They are not sweet but I’m enjoying one right now with my coffee and as much as I LOVE sugar, these are going to be my go to muffin as I need to stop (well as much as I can) consuming sugar. Thank you for a great recipe I’m super excited I found it:) Just sent the recipe to my son who barely eats anything with sugar so I know he will enjoy these as much as I am 🙂

Apologies…further to my comment…I should have mentioned I reduced the sugar to 2 tbsps because all I had in the fridge was my Astro vanilla yogurt so it has sugar already in the yogurt:)
