Low-Fat Chocolate Bran Muffins

Super-Easy Chocolate Bran Muffins

Mix together:
3 cups All-Bran Cereal with 2-1/2 cups water and let stand 5 minutes.
Add in:
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and one package of low-fat brownie mix.
Add in some mini chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries or cherries, nuts, if desired.
Blend well and pour into greased muffin tins (or line with know the drill.)
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes

Edited to add: One of my friends said she made these and poured boiling water over the cereal instead of cold and it broke the cereal down a lot better. It greatly improved the texture of the muffins. I tried it and she is right. One more can add All-bran in this way to increase the fiber and decrease the points of other low-fat baking mixes as well. Try it with other muffin mixes, and let me know how they turn out.

If you are counting points: 2 points each if you make 18 muffins, 1.5 points if you make 24 (these will be pretty small)
