Blueberry Avocado Bran Muffins

Blueberry Avocado Bran Muffins

These muffins are pretty mediterranean diet friendly but could be more friendly if you substituted the regular milk for almond milk or something similar. As it is they use avocado to replace butter which is a great source of monounsaturated fat, supposedly the best for you.

1 cup wheat bran

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tbsp Molasses

1 egg

1/2 cup mashed avocado

1 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1 1/2 cup blueberries (I use frozen, which are cheaper)

Mix your dry ingredients together in separate bowl. Mix avocado and sugar. Add egg, then milk, then molasses. Stir in dry ingredients. Stir in blueberries and nuts. Bake at 375 for about 20 min. Bake in large batches to freeze for breakfasts during the week.
