Moist Blueberry Bran Muffins

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 12


  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup blueberries frozen are fine, no need to thaw


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by lining with papers or greasing well.
  • Pour boiling water over wheat bran in a large bowl and stir until absorbed. Stir in brown sugar, vegetable oil and egg.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to bran mixture, gently stirring until mostly combined (there should still be a few floury streaks). Fold in blueberries, then divide batter among muffin cups. Bake 15-20 minutes, until tops feel springy when gently pressed. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
