    Blueberry Muffins (I'm lucky enough to have wild blueberries in my yard)


    2 1/4 cup oat-bran... 1 Tbsp baking powder
    1/4 cup honey... ~ 1 cup blueberries
    2 bananas... 1 1/4 cup skim milk
    2 egg whites... 2 Tbsp corn syrup

    Preheat oven to 425 F. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. The
    blueberries too, it keeps them from staining the ingredients. Mash
    the bananas in a separate bowl and mix the milk, egg whites, honey, and corn
    syrup together, then blend with the dry ingredients. Line muffin pans
    with paper baking cups, and fill with batter. Bake about 15 minutes.
    Makes 12 muffins.
    ***HINTS*** I found that if you try to eat these straight from the oven
    they tend to stick to the paper. They keep great for a week though
    in the frig without sticking. If you eat 3 of these a day, it is
    suppose to be a sufficient amount of oatbran to significantly lower
    your cholesterol. So far, I haven't seen much of a difference in my
    own, but that is just me and I am still trying. Also, if you use
    a 1/4 cup measure to scoop out the batter, it pretty much evenly
    distributes the batter amoung the 12 cups.

    ***Variations**** I have tried the following substitutions in many
    combinations and these are still good. raisens instead of blueberries
    or no fruit at all, 1/4 c brown sugar instead of 1/4 c honey, no bananas,
    one banana, 2 Tbsp of canola for 2 Tbsp of corn syrup although I wouldn't
    recommend this for obvious reasons.
    Also, you could try 2 cups of oatbran and 1/2 cup apple fiber. I have
    not tried this yet, but will the next time I make muffins. I FINALLY
    found apple fiber (no, not apple pectin) yesterday at a hfs thanks
    to my friend Jen who happens to be on this list!! Apple fiber is an
    even better fiber than oatbran, and therefore even better for lowering
    LDL and raising HDL!
