30 Aug Blueberry Bran Protein Muffins
Blueberry Bran Protein Muffins ???
When I was first searching for recipes ? I found a lot that used oat bran so I went with that. But after baking the first batch, I noticed the muffins were lighter in colour and the flavour and texture were not what I usually associated with bran muffins ?
So… I looked up types of bran and the differences between them
Here are the two most common:
Oat Bran – Higher Protein
Wheat Bran – Higher Fiber (over double) and Lower Fat
Winning bran: WHEAT BRAN ?
