The blackberries and oat bran make this a fiber-rich snack.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 standard muffin cups with paper liners. Whisk together flour, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

  • In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and 1/2 cup sugar on high until light and fluffy, about 6 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. With mixer on low, add flour mixture in 2 additions, alternating with buttermilk, and beat until combined. Fold in blackberries.

  • Divide batter among muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out with moist crumbs attached, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes, then transfer muffins to rack and let cool completely.

I can't find oat bran. Can I substitute something else for it? Or, where is it located in the grocery story?

Nice and moist, not too sweet. Made this for my two year old and she loved them! Will be making these again.

Easy to follow and quick to compile. We actually ended up with a surplus, so ended up with closer to 20 muffins. Tasty and a bit more wholesome with the addition of oats and buttermilk. I did not have buttermilk so did the old housewifes cheat of curdling milk with lemon, it worked a treat.
