Colon Blow Muffins

My very good friend passed this "keep things moving" staple that I thought I would share. I'll be baking some of these up this weekend before my surgery so I'll be ready!

1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 ½ cups KELLOGS* AL-BRAN* cereal
1 ¼ cups milk
¼ cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup molasses
1 egg
½ cup raisins (we like dates too)

1. Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Set aside.
2. In large bowl combine cereal and milk. Let stand about 5 minutes until cereal is moistened. Add oil, molasses and egg. Mix well. Stir in raisins.
3. Add flour mixture just until combined. Portion batter evenly into 12 lightly-greased or paper-lined 2 ½ “ muffin-pan cups.
4. Bake at 350F 20-22 minutes or until firm to the touch.

YIELD: 12 servings
VARIATION: Add 1 tsp ground cinnamon and ½ tsp nutmeg to flour.

PER SERVING: 1 muffin = 180 calories, 4.0 g dietary fibre, 6g fat, 30 g carbohydrate

Re: Colon Blow Muffins

Hi Aerius,

I made these muffins today and loved them! They're healthy and dense. I love the fact that molasses is used instead of sugar. I can't stomach the huge, sugar-filled costco-like muffins

I only modified a couple of ingredients:
*Used 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour because I ran out of all-purpose.

*Instead of the kellogs bran cereal I used fiber one.
After comparing labels of the 2 cereals, fiber one has 3 times as much fiber and does not contain corn syrup.

Next time I'll try adding dates (love em') over raisins, all whole wheat flour and play around with the cinnamon and nutmeg.

BTW: Do you or anyone reading this know of a more healthy oil to use for baking besides vegetable oil? I know it's used in quite a few baking recipes because it works well, but I'd prefer something that delivered the same results w/o all the bad fats.

These will be my breakfast staple!
Thanks again, Here's hoping for a successful BM soon

My sister is a baker - not professionally but she should be! She uses extra virgin olive oil in place of vegetable oil in all kinds of recipes for cakes, muffins, etc. Same measurements - but be sure its Extra Virgin.

Re: Colon Blow Muffins

These sound great! I am going to bake some up this weekend! And I second the coconut oil! Great flavor and it is really good for so many health reasons. It also does not burn easily so it's great for frying. We like to eat it spread on toast with jelly. In cool weather it is a solid and spreadable and when the weather warms up it turns to liquid!

Re: Colon Blow Muffins

These are the best. The name sealed the deal for me
I added in some Chia seeds and some prune slices to up the ante, but the original version worked just fine and tasted good too!

Re: Colon Blow Muffins

I suggest replacing 1/4 cup of the flour with ground flaxseeds, and adding in half a cup of magnesium-rich dark chocolate chips, which can really help to get things moving!
