Strawberry Muffins - Makes 12 muffins
1 1/2 cups oatbran 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup apple fiber Skim milk, if needed
1 tsp baking soda 2 Tbsp corn syrup (originally canola oil)
2 cups strawberries, fresh or frozen, preferably unsweetened (I used fresh)
3 egg whites
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper cups or spray
them with Pam.
In a large mixing bowl or in the food processor, combine oat bran,
apple fiber, and baking soda. (I just stirred with a spoon) Stir until
Place in a blender or food processor 1 cup of the strawberries
with the sugar and puree until smooth. Measure the strawberry puree; if
it does not measure 1 cup, add enough skim milk to bring it to that level.
Dice remaining strawberries.
In a small mixing bowl combine the strawberry puree and the corn
syrup, and stir this into the dry ingredients to combine thoroughly. Stir in
the chopped stawberries.
Beat egg whites until stiff and fold them into the batter. Spoon
the batter into the prepared muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes.
NOTES: The batter looked very dry to me and so did the muffins when
they came out of the oven, they looked funny too. But I just ate one
and they are delicious and more moist than the muffins I usually make!
