Applesauce-Blueberry Muffins

Here's a new muffin recipe that I made the other day.  The bran cereal made
them taste like whole wheat muffins.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                        Nonstick spray
   1 1/2   cups         all-purpose flour
     1/3  cup           sugar
   3      teaspoons     baking powder
     1/2  teaspoon      salt -- optional
   1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
   1      cup           blueberries, fresh or frozen
                        no sugar added
     3/4  cup           skim milk
   1      cup           unsweetened applesauce
   1      cup           bran flake cereal -- slightly crushed
     1/2  cup           egg beaters® 99% egg substitute

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Coat a regular 12-cup muffin pan with
nonstick spray.  In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mix the flour, sugar,
baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

In a small bowl, mix the berries, milk, applesauce, bran flake cereal, and
egg whites.  (If using frozen berries, thaw them until you can separate
them with a fork;  a microwave will do this nicely.  Then allow any melted
ice and juice to drip off.)

Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until the dry
ingredients are just moistened, about 20 strokes.  Overmixing will result
in poor-textured, tough bread.  Spoon the batter into the sprayed muffin
tin, dividing it evenly among the 12 cups.

Bake about 20 to 25 minutes until the muffins are browned, or until a
toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.  Allow the
muffins to sit for about 2 minutes in the tin, then transfer them to a wire
rack to cool.  Or place them in a cloth-lined basket, covering the muffins
with the edges of the napkin, and serve them warm.

Original recipe used 2 egg whites instead of the egg beaters.
