Peanut Butter Bran Muffins

My little girl gets so excited when we make muffins for breakfast. We did a lot of experimenting with healthy ingredients and finally found this recipe. These muffins are so good you won't believe they have 8 grams of fiber each!!
I've adapted the original recipe (which came from the side of our cereal box). Oh, the places one finds great recipes! :)Peanut Butter Bran Muffins
1 c. Kellogg's All Bran Buds
1 1/3 c. milk
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/3 c. peanut butter*
1 egg
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. oats
1/2 c. ground flaxseed
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1 c. chocolate chips (I used mini chocolate chips)

*If using unsalted peanut butter, add 1/2 t. salt
In a bowl, combine cereal and milk. Let soak about 10 minutes.
In a mixing bowl combine banana, peanut butter, and egg.Stir in soaked cereal.In a separate mixing bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients (except chocolate chips).Combine the two mixtures, adding chocolate chips at the end.Divide among 12 lined cupcake tins.Bake at 375 F for 16-20 minutes.I love these muffins. Tasty and moist! They make the perfect breakfast or snack.Enjoy!
