 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
                         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.
