Buttermilk Bran Breakfast Squares

Number of Servings: 9

Serving Size: 1/9 recipe

This is a variation of the popular buttermilk muffin recipe from my first book. It’s very moist, high in fiber and low in fat.

Name: Amount:
boiling water 0.50 cup
All Bran cereal 0.50 cup
egg substitute (equal to 1 egg) 0.25 cup
low-fat buttermilk 1 cup
granulated sugar 0.50 cup
unsweetened applesauce 0.25 cup
whole-wheat flour 0.75 cup
unbleached all-purpose flour 0.50 cup
baking soda 1 tsp
salt (optional) 0.50 tsp
Bran Buds or 100% Bran cereal 1 cup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, pour boiling water over the All Bran cereal and let stand until softened.


In a large bowl, mix egg substitute, buttermilk, sugar and applesauce.


Add the All Bran/water mixture to the egg mixture. Stir in flours, baking soda and salt (optional).


Mix just until moistened. Stir in Bran Buds or 100% Bran cereal.


Pour into an 8" x 8" pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.


Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Cut into 9 servings.
